Use #BCPSgoestocollege on May 2
TOWSON – Where to go to college? Big campus or small? Urban or rural? Close to home or far away?
Most Baltimore County Public Schools’ seniors have been agonizing over these decisions and anxiously awaiting acceptances for months now. But the end is near, and BCPS invites the entire community to join in celebrating National College Decision Day.
While National College Decision Day – the day when students and their families indicate their intention by paying deposits to their colleges of choice – is actually Sunday, May 1, BCPS will celebrate on the following day.
On Monday, May 2, BCPS encourages all Team BCPS stakeholders to use social media and in-school and in-community events to celebrate and congratulate seniors who have been accepted to college. All stakeholders – current and former students, teachers, staff, community partners, etc., – also are asked, on this day, to wear gear representing the colleges they attended or support, post photos and share messages about the importance of choosing the right college/university using #BCPSgoestocollege on Twitter and Facebook. Seniors are asked to use this same hashtag when sharing photos, excitement, and information about the colleges they plan to attend.
Graduating seniors who are going into the military or into the workforce right away are invited to share their plans as well using the hashtag #BCPSgoestowork.
