May 1 is National College Decision Day, which means many students are making the big decision on what they’ll be doing this fall. We want to congratulate all the students who worked hard to get to where they are today! Whether it’s a four-year college, two-year college, community college, military school, gap year, or something else—whatever you’ve chosen to do after you graduate high school, we want to celebrate you!
Some CollegeXpress students sent us pictures and videos of what their future after high school will be. These students are happy and proud they followed their dreams, and we couldn’t be more thrilled for them!
