Going to college is a scary new experience, but when graduating from Wesleyan, alumni can have the confidence that there is always a community back home to rely on. Reminiscing on their high school experiences, recently graduated Wesleyan seniors Jordyn Shackford (’19), Ashwin Gidwani (’19) and Ella V. Cooper (’19) give advice and guidance to soon-to-be college freshmen.
When asked what her favorite part of college has been thus far, Wesleyan Evergreen and current freshman at Auburn University, Jordyn Shackford, said, “Definitely the freedom and having more time to get work done during the day. Also, meeting so many different people from different states and being part of a sorority has been so fun.” Shackford paints college at Auburn to be a dream, but there was also loads of important information she wished she had known during her transition from high school to college and hopes rising college freshmen don’t make the same mistakes. She said, “You need to take advantage of the time with your friends because you will all be going completely different ways next year, and also ask your teachers for their best advice for college because college professors have no idea who you are and won’t care, and the Wesleyan teachers know you and care about you so much. You can’t study like you did in high school, and you should do research on the free tutors and resources the college offers to help you in your classes.” Shackford hopes to be a help and a guide for graduated seniors who are looking for guidance and clarity in their preparation for college.

The Alabama Crimson Tide was victorious and defeated the Georgia Bulldogs in overtime, with a pass into the endzone leaving Georgia fans in tears and Alabama fans in triumph, yet again.
