College Bound Q&A

Kala Wooten


BluePrint: What college were you accepted into?

Wooten: I was accepted at Grove City College.

BluePrint: How many colleges did you apply to?

Wooten: I applied to two colleges: Grove City and Messiah College

BluePrint: What made you apply to this specific college?

Wooten: I really love Grove City’s campus, it’s beautiful! The environment is so inviting. Everyone is so friendly and I’m looking forward to attending a Christian school.

BluePrint: What are you planning on majoring in?

Wooten: I’m planning on majoring in Mechanical Engineering.

BluePrint: What made you choose this specific major?

Wooten: I’m very indecisive, so I’m still not completely sure what I want to do after college. However, I have excelled in calculus and physics throughout high school so I think mechanical engineering would be a great fit.

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

Wooten: I believe I will see a lot of differences between college and high school. I feel like the environment will be a lot more relaxed and less stressful than high school. I’ll also be pretty far from home and Bellwood, so I’m excited to meet different people.

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

Wooten: I’ve enjoyed my years at BA high school, and I’m extremely sad to leave, but I’m also very excited to start this next chapter in my life. I can’t wait to be more independent, meet new people, and try new things. I’ll always love and miss home, but I’m ready for this next step!
