We're Celebrating National Decision Day With You!

by

Today 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!

“I’m so excited to announce that I will be going to Virginia Tech next year! I decided to tell the world in the most unique way possible—I baked my first cake! It doesn’t look great, but it definitely tasted good! I’m so excited for the future because of what opportunities it may bring. My intended major is Computer Science, and I love watching how the field grows—especially advances with space photography and virtual reality! I am ready to make my mark on Virginia Tech and eventually the world.”

“I am so excited to say that I will be taking a gap semester in the workforce and then be attending Old Dominion University in spring 2020. This school is about 40 minutes away from where I live, and there is no residency requirement for freshman, so I can commute and not have to pay room and board. I cannot wait to start on the next stage of my life.”
