Important Announcements from the Counseling Office:
Thank you to everyone who came out to the college fair last night! You should be getting a report of all of the colleges you spoke with today from Strive Scan. Don’t forget to follow up with those reps – especially if you are interested in applying to their schools. Lunchroom visits will continue, so be sure to stop by to talk to the reps that are here during your lunches throughout the semester. It’s never too early (or late!) to start making connections with colleges.

Seniors are also asked to please remind your parents that the FAFSA opens on October 1st. Remember that everyone who is planning on going to college should complete the FAFSA, regardless of income.

Do you watch the Capital One College Bowl with Payton Manning on NBC? Do you know how those students got to be so good at answering those questions? Chances are they were on their high school Scholastic Bowl team. Join the Brother Rice Scholastic Bowl team and who knows how far you can go! Come by to see what it’s like and give it a try. We are meeting after school on Friday in room 200. Everyone is welcome!
Congratulations to Junior Phill Cipriani and Sophomore Thor Hock of the Crusader golf team. Both players advanced out of Regionals on Wednesday at Idlewild. Phill was medalist at the event with a 73. No other player in the field broke 80. Phill and Thor will be playing Monday in the Sectional tournament at Old Orchard CC. And special thanks to Senior Danny Durkin, our Putting Guru, who gave Phill a tip on the practice green at Idlewild. Danny has a future as a Putting Coach on the PGA Tour.
