Tift County students get a chance to visit with representatives from every college in the state.

Forty-seven schools in all were at the Tift County College Probe. Students picked up literature, found out application deadlines, and visited with counselors. They also begin thinking about some tough decisions like what they'll do after high school in a time of weak job markets and skyrocketing tuition rates.

Career Counselor, Paige Wells said, "Big thing for students now is how am I going to pay for college, also a lot of students want to know about campus life, majors available, there's just a lot of things students considering this time of year."

"I know what I want to do, I'm just not sure what college I want to go to, this gives me an idea where I want to go and the different colleges that have the majors," Julie Lawhon, a Tift Senior said.

Tift County reports more than half of its graduates will pursue technical, associates, or bachelor's degrees.
