Various alumni returned to Brookstone on the morning of January 5th to speak to the juniors and seniors about college classes, professors and things to consider when making that all important decision on where to go to college. They each had a topic to speak about and then the students were allowed to ask questions.
Those alumni and their topics were:
Ali Mac Jinks- Georgia Tech- big city school
Lizzie Greenblatt- College of Charleston- balancing academics & extracurriculars
Sydney Weaver- Berry College- playing college sports
Duncan Fletcher- Furman University- advantages of a private institution + college athlete
Hendley Badcock- Washington & Lee- far away school + rigor of coursework
Tayler Townsend- Univ of South Carolina- is there more than one school that will fit?
Emily Almond- Auburn University- close to home school
Jack Kinnett- Furman University- importance of visiting schools + how to decide
Allie Johnson- Parson's School of Design- step out of the box school + follow your passion
