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.
