Along with the students in the video, others were interviewed for this story. Below are thoughts from students who did not make it to the video.
Alexis Legare, a senior, stated that she feels nervous about the workload when she thinks about heading off to college and starting life as a college student. “I am sad that I am leaving because I will miss my friends and family. College is a different atmosphere than high school.”
Kyle Gillispie, a senior, thinks that he will miss his friends and family the most. He believes his transition from a high schooler to a college student will be tough at first, but will become easier later on as he adjusts to an independent life. “I am excited about living by myself, gaining more independence, and meeting new people,” he explained.
