Twenty-eight TASIS juniors had a unique opportunity on February 18 when alumni joined them for a networking event in London during their Academic Travel trip to visit UK colleges. Most of the alumni were recent graduates from the classes of 2014 and 2015, plus a few from the classes of 2002–2004 who had the strange experience of being the most senior alumni that evening!
After a panel in which alumni gave tips about the college application process, college life, and living in the UK (the weather was mentioned more than once...), it was time to socialize and get more specific information through individual conversations. College counselors Howard Stickley, Greg & Carroll Birk, and co-trip leader Dan Schwartz agreed that it was a very successful event that we hope to repeat in the future.
A big thank you to the New College of the Humanities for hosting the event and for their warm welcome!
