Recent VC grads who are attending either college or a military academy returned to share their experiences with current seniors who are about considering similar paths. Grads told many stories about their challenges and accomplishments; about adjusting to different people and environments; about overcoming doubt and preconceived notions. Common themes were the importance of reaching out and getting to know new people, getting involved in campus activities, and managing time and responsibilities. They stressed that the more immersed and invested one becomes in the college experience, the more gratifying the journey will be.After the panel discussion, the VC Alums mingled with our seniors to answer individual questions, and, of course, to enjoy hot chocolate, coffee, and miscellaneous delicious coffeehouse items.
