RAM Day, College Fair Hit Harriton

Brandon Lapensohn, Assistant Working Editor

Last Friday in the Junior-Senior Lounge, Harriton High School hosted its annual RAM Day. During the three lunches, each active club and sports team at Harriton set up a booth to attract new members to join their club or team. Some of the clubs included World Affairs, Debate, Chess, Harriton Service League, Jared’s Box, Pitch Please, Art Club, Gems Not Genocide, Ramkind, Jam Club, TSA, Science Olympiad, and the Harriton Banner. Many sports teams also had booths, including crew, boys/girls basketball, swimming and diving, hockey, and fencing. Overall, this event was a huge success, as many prospective students joined multiple clubs and became active in the school community. Our thanks go to Mr. Ferguson and Ms. Cooke for again planning this special event.

On Tuesday, the first of two College Fairs throughout the year took place in the Harriton Gym. 11th and 12th grade potential students walked around the gym and visited the booths of each college or university that came to the event. Over 70 institutions came to this event, which turned out to be a huge success. The next college fair at Harriton will be in May, which will be hosted by Villanova University. Close to 300 academic institutions plan on attending.
