AFHS College Week

COLLEGE APPLICATION LABS
All seniors have the opportunity to apply for college during the school day next week.  We have our college reps coming for 4 hour blocks to help students, and 5 colleges are offering a waiver code, so students can apply for free! Seniors know they need to come to the counseling office ahead of time to pick up a pass for each college they want to apply to, and they will use this as a pass to leave class, come to the application lab (Room 102-103), and then go back to class when they finish.  Each application pass is color-coded by college.
 
Monday- Utah State & Snow College (8am-12pm)
Tuesday- Dixie State SUU (8am-12pm)
Wednesday- University of Utah (8am-12pm)
Thursday- UVU (8am-12pm)
Friday- BYU (9am-12pm)

SCAVENGER HUNT
– All students have the opportunity to pick up a Scavenger Hunt paper (Main Office, Counseling Office, or Library). There are 15 questions that require students to name a teacher who ___________________ and they also have to provide the answer.  (Scavenger Hunt is attached in this email).
 
Example:  
Name a teacher who can sing their college fight song; what college did they attend?  
 
Name a teacher who went to college on a scholarship; what kind of scholarship did they earn?
 
We encourage you to talk about your college experiences throughout the week– feel free to open up any kind of discussion to inspire your students!  And if you want to enjoy some extra entertainment, feel free to come and observe our Teacher Q&A panels on Thursday during lunch (Room 102) or Friday during Flex (Library).  
 
FLEX WORKSHOPS
Monday- Preparing for college applications (library)
Tuesday- MTECH (meant for 10th and 11th graders) (library)
Thursday- Scholarships/FAFSA (library)
Friday- Teacher Q&A Panel (library) and application help lab (Room 3)
 
Note: Students have to sign up and get their planners stamped ahead of time in the counseling office.
 
PLINKO
We will set up a PLINKO game (and prize tables) in the Main Commons area every day during lunch.  Students can earn PLINKO tickets by completing college applications, participating in Flex Workshops, or completing the Scavenger Hunt.  We spend all year collecting prizes and swag and we’re excited to incorporate the incentives and prizes during College Week.
 
We’re looking forward to a fun week, and hope it’s a great experience for all of you as well! Thanks for all you do to support our students.
