Peer College Club founders Eva and Michelle Kaganovsky enjoy a conversation on upcoming tour ideas with some of the members of the Peer College Club.

Junior Maria Danan walks into the classroom, sits down, brings out her lunch and waits to hear what this week’s meeting will have in store.

“I come to Peer College Club because I want to learn more about college and what I have to do to have a better resume,” Danan said.

The Peer College Club started last November when juniors Eva and Michelle Kaganovsky came together to pursue a better understanding of how to prepare for college. Counselor Martina Torres has helped by becoming a guest speaker at the club every week.

“The goal of this club is for these students to gain awareness of college information to help prepare them for their journey after high school,” Torres said.

The club meets every Thursday in club sponsor Davy Mauermann’s classroom. Club members discuss career paths, colleges and scholarships.

“The club is really helpful, we talk about financial aid and how to get accepted by the colleges we want to attend to,” Danan said.

Michelle and Eva are the presidents of the Peer College Club. They are responsible for organizing meetings, inviting college representatives and arranging college visits.

Much like Danan, junior Faith Alvarenga came to the Peer College Club with hopes that she would gain a better understanding about college and to plan ahead for senior year.

“I felt like I lacked knowledge about the application process,” Alvarenga said.
