11th Annual College Awareness Day

Hampton Bays Middle School hosted its 11th annual College Awareness Day on Jan. 2. Organized by guidance counselors Laurie O’Halloran and Jessica Sears, the event serves to motivate eighth-graders to start thinking about their future plans.

The eighth-graders gained insight and perspective into college life from Hampton Bays High School alumni who are currently enrolled in college. The alumni answered questions about their college experiences and discussed their typical schedules, as well as their school’s admissions process and extracurricular offerings. 

The district thanks the following alumni who participated in the event: Sydney Caldwell, University of Vermont; Jean Louise Catena, West Virginia University; Colette Levine, SUNY Buffalo; Meghan Long, James Madison University; Noah Montague, Stony Brook University; Caroline Oakland, Syracuse University; Alexa Peterson, Stony Brook University; and Mackenzie Tyler, Harvard University.
