A group of 30 graduating seniors from Bowman High School were invited to attend "Cougar Days" on April 23 at the College of the Canyons, a beneficial opportunity to learn more about the First Year Experience program.

For incoming freshmen, enrollment in the First Year Experience program guarantees priority enrollment in one English class and one math class. Peer tutoring and mentorship, smaller class sizes, year-long faculty mentorship, academic and career guidance planning also help, in addition to a summer orientation.

The event began around 8 a.m. in the cafeteria, where students had the privilege to ask student leaders from COC any questions they may have about college life, and COC in particular. This included information on taking the placement test more effectively, as well as a very informative tour of the campus and an Internet activity that was used to discover potential academic and career paths.

As noon rolled around, the day came to an end.

Or rather, a new beginning, for Bowman students. To quote one student, "We arrived as Bulldogs, but we left as potential Cougars."

Covas Constantine is a Bowman High School student.
