The event will begin at 5:30 p.m. with dinner in the LBHS Quad, where food trucks will be available for food purchase. At 6 p.m., guest speaker Nicholas Wyman will speak in the quad addressing apprenticeship and skills-based careers. Wyman is an internationally renowned speaker and workforce expert, as well as the author of the award-winning book, Job U: How to Find Wealth and Success by Developing the Skills Companies Actually Need. Following the guest speaker, guests are invited to Guyer Field, where the College Round-Up Fair will begin at 7 p.m. Students will be able to speak to a plethora of college representatives, ask questions, and get a feel for which schools they are interested in attending. Some schools that will be in attendance include Arizona State University, Chapman University, CSU Fullerton, FIDM, Golden West College, Iowa State University, Oregon State University, Texas Tech University and UC San Diego.

According to College and Career Specialist Lynn Gregory, “Exploration is key when considering post-secondary institutions. Why you are going to college is fundamental in the selection process when building a college list. It’s more about focusing on your interests and programs that foster those interests than an institution by itself. Knowing ‘why’ allows you to go broader in your search, finding the hidden gem schools that you never thought of before.”

On the day following the College Round-Up and speaker event, all students and their families are encouraged to attend The Professor is In, a professor’s guide to the college admissions essay on Thursday, Oct. 14 in the LBHS Artists Theatre. Dr. Kyle Jensen, professor of English and Director of Writing Programs at Arizona State University, will give professional insight and tips to help students prepare for writing their college admissions essays. This event will begin at 6:30 p.m. and conclude at 8 p.m. 

Laguna Beach High School is located at 625 Park Ave., Laguna Beach.
