Colleges on the menu at Havelock High School

“I wanted to learn about what kinds of programs they offered and when I might be able to see the campus,” she said, adding that she has a visit planned for Meredith later this month.

She attended College Day last year as a junior but narrowed her focus this year.

“I feel like I’m more aware of what I would like to do now,” she said. “I’ve been doing research on different colleges, so I’ve been walking around here looking at colleges that I know have my particular field of study.”

Koontz said she appreciated the opportunity to talk to college representatives face-to-face.

“I think every junior and senior should take advantage of what colleges have to offer so they can make important decisions about what they want to do,” she said.

For the college representatives, September and October are busy as they visit high schools throughout the region. Tony Williams, who is from Pamlico County, was hoping to attract students to Coastal Carolina in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

“We don’t get a lot of students from this area,” he said. “A lot of students don’t want to get out of the Havelock area, and if they do, they go to ECU, which is a good thing, but they have options.”
