Saratoga Library Teen Advisory Board to hold College Day for students

The Saratoga Library Teen Advisory Board (TAB) will hold its second annual College Day in the community room of the Saratoga Library on March 21 at 10 a.m.

College Day subcommittee member senior Arhem Barkatullah said that College Day is about educating students about various parts of applying to college. The event will be similar to the first College Day held by the library last year. According to Barkatullah, this year’s will have more panelists and even better presentations.

Librarian and TAB adviser Birgit Spring said that this event is intended to help alleviate current juniors’ fears about college.

Panelists include experts from local colleges, community members and two Saratoga High School seniors who just went through the process themselves. Spring hopes that students will be able to ask these panelists questions they have and get the answers they need.

As further incentives to get students to attend, TAB will also provide cookies and a raffle for SAT practice books.

The two-hour event will feature two 15-minute presentations from Mike Lysaght, LMFT, and Katy Fitzgerald from Mission College.  Seven students and community members will answer questions from the audience as part of a panel afterwards.

The panelists will include Saratoga Vice Mayor and DeAnza College Faculty member Manny Cappello, Saratoga Library Commission Chair Lauren Marty, Los Gatos Saratoga High School District Trustee Katherine Tseng, Lysaght, Fitzgerald, TAB president senior Riddhi Sangam and TAB member senior Sarah Deva.

“I hope that students will gain a better understanding of the college applications process,” Sangam said. “I also hope that the presentations and panel discussion are helpful.”
