It was great to see so many alumni return for this event. Although it appeared to be the alumni and faculty having the most fun reconnecting, current students couldn’t help but be inspired by the return of so many recent RHS graduates, eager to share their excitement and tell about life after RHS.
During the event, I asked as many grads as I could, “what was your biggest challenge as a first-year college student? Most if not all responded, “managing my time”. Many said their classes were difficult – harder than they imagined. The two answers intertwined.
Having survived their first half year of college and still smiling, each alum was an inspiration. Thank you grads for attending and to our faculty and students for taking advantage of this opportunity.
