There were graphs and numbers and percentages.
Talk of colleges visits on and off campus.
He said that Pacific University comes out several times a year to recruit.
So the next day,
I emailed the school to see how many colleges came to visit so far this year and they responded by telling me, that if I wanted to know, I would have to go look in the visitor's log book.
I went to look in the book and there, in October, was a name - with the purpose - "college visit " - but did not list the college. It so happened the (only) school councilor walked in the office and I nicely asked him if he could tell me what college this recruiter came from and he looked at it and said to me, "No. I don't know."
The next college recruiter was listed as a visitor in November. He was from Heald College. That is a for-profit sort of business, healthcare, technology college.
The third recruiter, who was there in December is the one I have decided was likely not a college recruiter. He was listed as, "MAC FB College Visit" and signed in at 7:30am. He did not sign out. School starts at 8:15am. So this, to me, is likely not a college recruiter.
I may not be a math whiz, but I do know right from wrong when I see it.
I carry this sign most school mornings for about 1/2 hour and walk up and down the sidewalk near the driveway into the school.
If you are in the neighborhood - come and walk with me!
