Alumni Day 2017 - What to Expect

Image
On Friday, December 22, the current senior class will take part in the first annual WHS Alumni Day.  We have over forty-five recent graduates who have agreed to come back to Waldwick High School and talk with the current seniors and share their college experiences. 

The goal for the day is for the alumni to give the current seniors an inside perspective into what college life is all about and share strategies that helped them adjust to life after Waldwick High School. 

The day will start out with the entire class participating in a panel discussion, followed by nine different breakout sessions run by the alumni. Students were given the choice of which three sessions they were interested in attending.

Topics for Breakout Sessions
Unique Aspects of a Big School 
Unique Aspects of a Small School 
Athletics
Social/Greek Life
Commuting to College 
Living Away/Dorm Life
Ivy League/Elite Schools 
Military 
LGBTQ on Campus

The Waldwick High School chapter of the National Honor Society has created an informational document to help students and parents understand what the requirements are to be accepted and how the process works.

Everything starts with the student's academic record.
