Sports medicine attends field trip

Sports medicine students attended a college fair Tuesday, Oct. 22 at the Diamond Bar Center.

During the event, sports medicine students learned about out-of-state college opportunities. Colleges from around the world had representatives attend the fair, including Quest University from British Columbia, Canada. Students learned how to apply for scholarships to these schools.

”Learning about the environment at out-of-state colleges was my favorite part,” senior Jacob Cortez said. “I personally don’t want to go out of state, but I think it’s still a good option.”

Representatives from colleges such as Maryville University offered an affordable price, which includes their dormitories and textbooks. Pennsylvania State University was slightly more expensive than the rest because they do not include textbooks and rooms in their tuition fees.

“The representatives were all talking about how you grow more as an adult if you go out of state because you’re away from your family,” senior Nikki Searcy said. “This gave me a better idea of where I would like to go.”
