Some of Nicholas County High School’s seniors attended the West Virginia University Institute of Technology and New River Community and Technical College tours on Wednesday, October 30 in Beckley.
NCHS students first went to WVU Tech. Students got information about the school and were then able to tour campus. Senior Katrina Simmons explained, “Tech had many majors that interested me, and I liked that classes weren’t too big.” Katrina said she liked WVU Tech, but it just wasn’t what she is looking for in a college. However, she is glad she went on the trip. “It made my options for college more open and easier,” explained Katrina.
Following the tour at Tech, students went to tour New River Community and Technical College. Another senior, Zach O’Dell, liked New River and would consider going there for Business Management.
