Although they are few years away from applying for colleges, ninth-graders from Edmund W. Miles Middle School recently learned about the expectations for higher education. More than three dozen students attended College Awareness Day at Adelphi University.

There were presentations on the admissions process, study abroad opportunities and summer pre-college programs, as well as pep rally, panel discussion, question and answer session, lunch and campus tour. It helped students gain an understanding about the decisions they need to make in high school to be accepted in the colleges they desire. The 39 Amityville students who attended were chosen based on essays they submitted about honoring veterans and members of the armed forces.
