CVSRMarches TowardCollege
By KatieMcFadden
The seniors of Channel View
School for Research took a step
toward the future on Friday,
December 9. As part of the 6th
Annual College March, they
put their final applications and
supplemental items in the mail,
completing a big first step in the
college admissions process.
The seniors of CVSRare among
the 2,700 high school students
from 35 schools across the coun-
try that participated in this event.
During this event, which started
in 2011, students march their
college applications or addition-
al items like essays, SAT scores,
recommendations and more to
a local post office, completing
the stressful college application
process. The annual ceremony
promotes the idea that college is
accessible to all and to encour-
age the desire to continue edu-
cation past high school. The Col-
lege March has been recognized
by President BarackObama as he
mentioned it in his 2014 State of
the Union address. CVSR is one
of eight NYC Outward Bound
Schools that participate in this
event. In CVSR’s case, the post
office came to them, with a rep-
resentative collecting a box full
of mail that students placed in a
large mock mailbox after march-
ing around the track at the Beach
Channel Educational Campus
on Friday. The CVSR band led
the procession as fellow students
in lower grades cheered on the
seniors and got a glimpse into
their future.
For the students of Channel
View, being done with the first
step in the application process
is a big accomplishment. “It’s
obviously a relief,” senior Lore-
na Escobar said. Escobar’s
top schools include New York
University, SUNY Buffalo and
Oswego and a university in Bal-
timore. She hopes to study busi-
ness administration and has
dreams of owning hotels around
the world. “I’m super excited.
I’m finally going to be able to
pursue my dream and career,”
Escobar said. Senior Arpitha
Khosla says it’s not only a big
step toward the future, but a big
life change. “I feel old. I feel like
my childhood is being ripped
from me,” she joked. “But I’m
excited to learned things that
interest me.” Khosla’s dream
school is Skidmore, but Barnard
andSarahLawrencearealsohigh
onher list. She hopes to study so-
ciology.
