Senior day 2013 goes off without a hitch
Last Thursday, Saddleback College had its annual senior day in the quad from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.
Seniors from every high school attended the event, they were able to ask questions and learn about different aspects of Saddleback. Instructors, advisors, and club representatives among many others were available to assist them.
Professor Bowman and Professor Welc of the Business, Science, and Economic workforce explained how important they felt it was for students to learn about what they do.
“Knowledge is power,” Welc said.
“We’re here answering questions about real estate and accounting. What kind of money and how much you can make, what classes you need for this field and more,” Bowman said.
Representatives from the Saddleback Health Sciences division were also available to answer questions.
“The health field is so important. It is the fastest growing field in 2014 and I don’t think students realize just how many careers you can get in the health field. Not everyone can go into nursing, ” Victoria Orlich, nursing instructor, said.
There were also many other activities students could participate in to learn about different classes and fields offered at Saddleback. There was also free In-n-out burgers available for the students who participated in the various 10 minute workshops. The astronomy and physics club gave seniors the chance to look through a telescope at the sun and several games of musical chairs were played to the tune of Saddleback’s own radio station, O.C. Rock Radio.
Sara Moore, program director for O.C. Rock Radio, said “O.C. Rock Radio is a student run radio station that focuses on alternative rock and local bands. We’re here today to provide music for entertainment.”
“I came to learn about classes. My favorite part of the day was getting to know the different clubs and the free In N Out,” said Jennifer Espiritu, 18, El Toro High School.
Many students viewed Senior Day as a success and stated they learned a lot about Saddleback.
“Irania Sanchez, 17, El Toro High School said, “I came to learn about classes and to register. I’m going to be majoring in either Biology or going into the medical field.”
