Herkimer BOCES cosmetology students hear about
college opportunities, being smart on social media

Oct. 13, 2017




Hillary Oddo speaks to cosmetology students
Bryant and Stratton College high school coordinator Hillary Oddo speaks to Herkimer-Fulton-Hamilton-Otsego BOCES cosmetology students on Oct. 4 about college preparation, career interests and the importance of being smart on social media.



HERKIMER – Herkimer-Fulton-Hamilton-Otsego BOCES cosmetology students recently found out that whether they knew it or not, they all have tattoos – digital tattoos that is.

Digital tattoos are the imprints people leave online through their social media accounts. They’re also often reviewed by potential colleges and employers when considering an applicant, Bryant and Stratton College high school coordinator Hillary Oddo told the Herkimer BOCES cosmetology students on Oct. 4.

It’s important for students to realize that one post, comment, photograph or video can go viral or just come up on a Google search and lead to destructive consequences, Oddo said. She would never tell students not to use social media at all, but just tells them to be smart about it, she said.

“Especially juniors and seniors when they’re applying to college,” she said. “I don’t think they realize colleges look at those things.”

Herkimer BOCES cosmetology instructor Holly Rotundo Fischer invited Oddo to spend the whole school day on Oct. 4 visiting Herkimer BOCES cosmetology juniors and seniors. The cosmetology program has an articulation agreement with Bryant and Stratton College.

Oddo also talked to the students about college preparation and gave them personality tests to match them up with ideas for potential careers.
