Moss at the Movies
David got exclusive interviews with Leonardo DiCaprio, Isla Fisher, and Joel Edgerton of the new film, “The Great Gatsby.”
The Great Gatsby follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy.
The film is in theaters May 10, this Friday!

Planning for College
The school year is winding down, but there’s no break for high school students! It’s time to think about college! Here with a checklist of what you should be doing now, was Dr. Michele Scott Taylor from College Now Greater Cleveland.
- Visit Colleges: Determine which college is the “Best Fit”—academically, financially, Socially, and culturally. Two great resources:
- Prep for standardized tests like the ACT or SAT: College Now is offering boot camps throughout the summer and some schools to help students increase their test scores, which could lead to more money!
- Know your deadlines: Deadlines for applications and scholarships vary greatly. Starting mapping out the deadlines for schools you are interested in and scholarships you think you may eligible to apply for.
- Begin mapping out a four-year financial plan: Getting to and through college requires planning beyond the freshman year. Think through paying for college through at least the first four years–Creativity is good!
- Apply to colleges : October and November is truly the application season if you are looking securing institutional aid
- Know the financial aid timeline:
- Get your FAFSA pin in December
- Look for scholarships and submit applications
- Start the FAFSA application in January
- Complete your taxes as soon as possible
- Compare different financial aid reward letters from schools
- Start Early!
- It’s never too late. Current seniors can still work towards enrolling in some schools this fall.
- Visit College Now in our Resource Center in Tower City or in one of the 80 schools where we have College advisors ready to assist you in the college-going process.
