Recruiters from more than 100 colleges, as well as the armed forces, recently visited Amityville Memorial High School for the annual spring college fair. The gymnasium was buzzing as students collected informational items to help them make educated decisions about their post-high school plans. They learned about each school’s academic, athletic and extracurricular offerings, scholarship opportunities, job placement services and campus life.
The fair was open to students in all grades. Guidance counselor Maria Leon-Pineros said it was particularly important for underclassmen to attend to learn about the requirements needed to get into the college of their choice, such as grade point average and SAT scores.
