Here is an interview I conducted, asking City Graduate David Johnson (Class of 2022) questions about life after High School
1) What are you doing now?
I am majoring in Finance and Accounting at GVSU
2) Is it what you expected to be doing at this time?
Mostly what I expected, although I added accounting as a major unexpectedly
3) Is there something you wish you’d known back when you were graduating high school that would’ve prepared you for the future?
Please please please check rate my professor before you apply for college classes lmao
4) Any advice for those graduating soon?
Celebrate your graduation with friends/family. Try not to apply for morning classes (even if you’re a morning person), write all your assignments in a calendar on your first day of college, apply for college-specific scholarships first (higher chance of getting them), and know that whether you go to college, trade school, take a gap year or start working right away there are benefits to each path and only you know which route is the best for you.
5) What do you think is the hardest thing about post-graduation life? The easiest?
The hardest thing is having to keep track of your assignments by yourself- most teachers won’t remind you of homework in person or online. The easiest thing is having so much time for hw/studying, as you are in a class way less than in high school
6) What’s one thing you miss about City?
I miss the sense that everybody knew each other. In college, you rarely know 20% of the people in your class
7) Do you still talk with your high school friends?
Yeah, I am roommates with 3 of them and I have multiple friends from City who come over every week to play volleyball and basketball
