BluePrint: What college were you accepted into?

Kowalski: I was accepted into Robert Morris University.

BluePrint: How many colleges did you apply to?

Kowalski: RMU was one out of three colleges that I applied to. The two other colleges were Duquesne and Susquehanna.

BluePrint: What made you apply to this specific college?

Kowalski: I liked the location and size the most; a small school right outside of Pittsburgh.

BluePrint: What are you planning on majoring in?

Kowalski: I plan to get a major in sports communication.

BluePrint: What made you choose this specific major?

Kowalski: I’ve always followed sports, everything from varsity into the national leagues. I enjoy researching and informing the public about sports, which is also why I decided to take up BluePrint my senior year.

BluePrint: What do you think will be some of the major differences between college and high school?

Kowalski: I think college will be a lot harder than high school, but I’m up for the challenge. Working hard has never been a problem for me.

BluePrint: What are your feelings on moving on from Bellwood-Antis High School?

Kowalski: I’m ready to move on from Bellwood-Antis, but a little scared as well. It’s going to be such a big change going from a small town to a big city. I’m also going to miss my soccer team. I spend all of my extra time playing soccer or just spending time with my team, so the transition to college is going to be boring. I’m going to have to find a new hobby.
