The Lantern (Cannon Falls HS): Creating College Confidence

Emma Conway, Features Editor, 11/30/2018

After listening to an admissions director from Minnesota State College Southeast (MSCS), Laura Thomas, on Wednesday, November 28, I learned that college may not be as clear cut as I thought.

College can look different for everyone; it doesn't have to strictly be a four year university. Struggling with a learning disability, Laura Thomas revealed that she didn't think college would ever be an option for her. "I didn't think I was smart enough. I didn't think I was 'college material'," Thomas stated. Currently Thomas has earned a diploma in early childhood development, an associates of liberal arts, and a bachelors of arts and organizational communication, showing that her idea of "college material" was simply a misconception.
