BPHS will host the annual College Fair on Tuesday, Oct.9 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. This will be the last year Bethel hosts the Fair. Next year, it’ll move to Mount Lebanon.

The College Fair is being held in the BPHS cafeteria, main gym and south gym. There will be about 117 schools in attendance, from community colleges, universities, tech schools and two-year schools. The schools are organized alphabetically from the cafeteria to the south gym. California University of Pennsylvania, Harvard College, University of Pittsburgh and Point Park are just a few schools attending.

It is expected that a couple thousand students will attend the fair. Last year, 1,500 students attended the Fair. BPHS has invited Mount Lebanon, Upper Saint Clair, Peters Township and South Fayette high schools to attend as well.

Mr. Bruce, coordinator of the College Fair at BPHS, said, “It would be very beneficial for students to attend and get some one-on-one time with the college reps.”

“The College Fair is such an amazing experience, you get to see colleges you’ve never even heard of,’’ said junior Ana Rudolph.

The YMCA ice rink is where you can find the ice hockey team’s three-year varsity starter Nick Guimond, aka Nicky G. Nick is a senior and this is his second year writing for Hawk Eye, the online newspaper. He hopes to bring a strong influence to this year’s sports articles, by leading the new writers in the right direction.

When asked if there was anything else he hopes to contribute, Nick simply said, “My man Mullen and I are going to be making The Hawk Seat better than ever this year with insanely cool videos.”

Speaking of which, The Hawk Seat is currently in the market for one new member, after losing senior anchor Gavin Campbell.

In the future, Nick plans on attending college and has high hopes to play ice hockey at the collegiate level. Once at college, he wants to pursue being a mechanical engineer because of his extreme skill in mathematics.

When it comes to superpowers, it is a clear decision for Nick, as he wants to be just like his favorite superhero, The Flash. With this being said, having super speed would be the most appealing to Nick.

“The great white north or should I say, Canada, is always calling me back every time I think of where I would like to go for my dream vacation,” Nick said in response to the question about his dream vacation.

But if he had the opportunity for a dream date, Nick likes to keep it simple.

“A nice long walk on the beach would set the mood just right.”
