Dozens of college booths are surrounded by anxious students waiting to take a look at their upcoming future. Brochures are passed around as college recruiters sell what their college will have in store for these students.

Previously, on Monday, Oct. 28, Texas High held their annual college night. Colleges from Texas and surrounding states attended to raise the students interest on where they would like to spend their years after high school.

“College night helped me decide where I would like to go to college,” senior Donovan Davis said. “It guided me to the schools that mainly focused on my major.”

Not only did this event help students decide where they would like to attend, but it brought an overall great experience to those who were getting ready for college.

“It was really well organized, and it helped me get a better idea of where I would like to go to college,” junior Baylee McBride said. “It provided me with a lot more needed information.”

Having more than 800 people attend, this college night had one of the largest and most successful turnouts. Parents also tagged along in order to get an idea of what college night consisted of for their children.

“I really want to go to Ouachita Baptist University,” McBride said. “College night helped me realize that I like smaller colleges over the larger colleges.”

Whether students liked large universities or small private colleges, college night provided a perfect atmosphere for those who were not sure where they wanted attend.

“I thought it was a great experience,” McBride said. “It helped me confirm my decision for college.”
