High turnout for Stillwater’s college fair

 The occurrence of this year's college fair is very helpful for many students especially juniors and sophomores. When students are given the tools to learn more about their future, it's incredibly useful for students in the long run. Unfortunately some students were not given the chance to use this tool. Many current seniors never got a chance to experience the college fair. However, these same students have now become more determined to get underclassmen to go to the college fair, due to how beneficial they know the fair is.
  Senior Mary Norkol says, “I would have loved to have the opportunity to learn about local colleges and find out what I did and didn't want in a school.”
