What is your favorite part of college so far?
My favorite part of college so far is the diversity. I have loved meeting new people with such unique backgrounds as well as exploring new subjects and engaging in different activities.
What is the biggest difference between college and Sacred Heart?
There are many differences between Stanford and Sacred Heart! Some of the most noticeable are the size of the student body and campus, but more than anything there is a bigger sense of independence and unconventionality on this campus.

How are you keeping in touch with your Sacred Heart friends?
I have been able to keep in good touch with my Sacred Heart friends via text or Facebook! I don’t think it is difficult to stay connected, but it definitely requires more effort to maintain a friendship when you are several thousand miles apart!
What activities are you involved in at college?
Stanford has yet to have our activities fair but I am interested in pursuing student council or government options as well as getting involved with entrepreneurial groups on campus. I also hope to continue to apply what I learned at Sacred Heart in Journalism on campus by getting involved with one of Stanford’s many publications!
What is the most important thing to bring to college?
I think the most important thing to bring to college are photos especially of your family, friends, and even pets! It’s amazing how much they brighten up your room and make the transition away from home a bit easier!
Sarah Jackmauh
Georgetown University Class of 2019
Content Editor of the King Street Chronicle
What is your favorite part of college so far?
My favorite part of college is the independence. I love being able to go from class to class on my own and navigate new territories. I love going out with my friends and spending time getting to meet new people at social events. I love just talking to people! Also, we have boys, which is definitely a shift…
What is the biggest difference between college and Sacred Heart?
The biggest difference between college and CSH is the lack of schedule. Of course, I have developed daily routines, but nothing compares to the regiments of high school. I love the independence of being able to walk around campus and meet new people.

I have been texting and Snapchatting my friends from home. I love seeing pictures and hearing all of their stories! It’s also comforting to know that everyone is adjusting just like you – we’re all in the same boat. 
What activities are you involved in at college?
Georgetown is very competitive about its clubs, so I have recently submitted my applications to a variety of different clubs. I am also on the club running team and have signed up for DC Schools [Project] which is an English tutoring program for students in urban Washington, DC. 
What is the most important thing to bring to college?
(1) A dustbuster. So compact. You don’t realize how many crumbs you drop on the floor. (2) Sticky tack to hang up pictures. Tape doesn’t work on my walls… (3) Food! (4) Sneakers and comfy shoes – you don’t realize how much you walk every day!! (5) Some type of CSH apparel. I am wearing my sweatshirt now as I write to you.

What is your favorite part of college so far?
My favorite part about college so far is meeting new people. There are so many interesting students who have different ideas, passions, and personalities and it is so fun to get to know them.

The biggest difference is definitely the level of independence. At Sacred Heart, I was guided by my teachers and parents and always had a really busy and rigid schedule. Here, I have to really take initiative and manage my time in order to not only get my work done but also get involved in other activities.
How are you keeping in touch with your Sacred Heart friends?
I talk to them a lot over the phone and I always text them in the day.
What activities are you involved in at college?
At the moment, I am involved in club field hockey and club lacrosse. I might also join some other clubs/organizations but I will not know for another few weeks.
What is the most important thing to bring to college?
I would suggest bringing lots of clothes because then you don’t have to keep doing laundry. I think that it is also so important to bring an open mind to college. It can seem a little overwhelming at first because so many aspects of your life have changed. But going in with a positive attitude and a desire to want to get to know people will make all the difference.
Anna Phillips
University of Virginia Class of 2019
Content Editor of the King Street Chronicle
What is your favorite part of college so far?
My favorite part about college so far is definitely how much more freedom you have, and how much more free time you have. It’s also so nice to be around all your friends all the time, and having almost everything be within walking distance.

The biggest different between college and Sacred Heart is definitely the schedule. My earliest class starts at 11:00 am, and on Fridays I don’t have class until 3:00 pm, which is obviously a lot different from high school. UVA also has about 15,000 students, so there’s a huge size difference as well, and it was definitely an adjustment going from knowing everyone in my grade to being in classes with 300 people I don’t know.
How are you keeping in touch with your friends from CSH?
It’s definitely hard to keep in touch with CSH friends, especially since everyone is so busy and people have such different schedules. But I always try to FaceTime people whenever I can and obviously just text throughout the day. A lot of people go to schools nearby, so hopefully we can all visit each other as well.
What activities are you involved in at college?
I’ve been super busy, so I definitely have not joined as many clubs and activities as I should have, but my friends and I recently joined the outdoors club, as well as the Nicaraguan Orphan Fund, which is a club that helps raise money for children in Nicaragua.
What is the most important thing to bring to college?
If you drink coffee, the most important thing to bring is definitely a Keurig or coffee maker. I always wake up so late for class and I absolutely need coffee in the morning, so a Keurig is definitely necessary.
