Transitioning to College Alumni Panel

The counseling office recently hosted an alumni panel for current JPII seniors to discuss their transition from high school to college. The library was full of interested and inquisitive students, who found the discussion very informative. Topics covered included: what it’s like to move away from home, how to choose a roommate, how to select classes, how to handle peer pressure, and how to meet new people and feel a sense of belonging in the community. Both students and counselors agreed the event was a success!
