Nathan Williams. Abigail Leali | Collegian

Academic Services will host a sophomore panel for freshmen to hear reflections from four sophomores on their own first year experiences at Hillsdale on Sept. 7 at 7 p.m. in the Heritage room of Mossey Library.

The panel discussions will include topics such as academics, religion, personal life, and misconceptions about the college itself.

Sophomores Karissa McCarthy and Nathan Williams will share what they have learned since freshman year, what they wish they had done differently, and how they will change in the future.  McCarthy said she plans to discuss her academic career and spiritual life, while Williams said he will share how his self-perception has changed and what he has learned about relationships since coming to Hillsdale.  

Freshmen will hopefully walk away with a deeper understanding of the school they are just beginning to know, and they will hear stories from the triumphs and mistakes of those who came before. These speakers will discuss the joys and trials of college life with those still largely unfamiliar with them.
