Throughout the year representatives from various colleges visit MHS to talk to interested students. We encourage seniors and juniors to take the opportunity to meet with these people. However, students are reminded that these professionals are here to ‘sell’ their schools. No decisions should be made solely on one conversation. Students are urged to visit several schools before making their final decision.
We highly encourage seniors to take advantage of college open houses scheduled on school holidays such as Columbus Day, Veterans Day or Presidents Day. Several schools also hold open houses on Saturdays.
MHS seniors are allowed one college day without affecting their perfect attendance record. Arrangements for college days must be made with the guidance office at least two days prior to the intended absence.
Below is the schedule for college representatives who will be visiting MHS in this school year. All visits are scheduled during Resource period. Students must obtain a pass from the guidance office prior to Resource period.
Colleges below have been linked to their home page. Please access their websites to find details about scheduling camups visits.
