Laycee Clark: Making the trek to Penn Tech


College Bound Q&A

Laycee Clark


BluePrint: What college were you accepted into?

Clark: I was accepted into the Pennsylvania College of Technology.

BluePrint: How many colleges did you apply to?

Clark: I applied to two colleges: Frostburg University and the Pennsylvania College of Technology.

BluePrint: What made you apply to this specific college?

Clark: I applied after I went on a campus tour. The campus was easy to get around and the student representatives were really nice. It has a good reputation for academics, and it gives me the opportunity to play softball as well.

BluePrint: What are you planning on majoring in?

Clark: I intend to major in surgical technology.

BluePrint: What made you choose this specific major?

Clark: I chose this major because I like the idea of being in an operating room, but I’m unsure if I could be the one to actually perform the surgery.

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

Clark: I think the work will be much harder, but a more laid-back schedule will help with it all. I don’t foresee myself having eight classes back-to-back everyday like I do now.

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

Clark: I will miss the teachers and students that I have become close to, but I am eagerly anticipating moving on and becoming more independent.
