College Night 2010 is scheduled for Wednesday, September 22, 2010 from 6 to 8 p.m. in the SF Gymnasium (Building-V). Representatives from more than 70 institutions of higher learning will be on hand to meet with students from Alachua and Bradford counties, current SF students and other members of the community during SF’s annual College Night. Guests can talk person-to-person to college reps, pick up marketing materials, and find out about interesting majors and programs -- all at a fun, "buzzy" event! (No expensive trips!) 
The event is geared towards high school juniors and seniors, college transfer students, and parents. It is free and open to the public. For more information, visit or or contact Stacey Ledvina at 352-395-5611 or
On a personal note, I attended this event with my daughter last year. If you child is interested in any of the colleges or universities attending, I would recommend going. Don't forget to pick up some swag! - E. Boulet
