Northwood Seniors Make Their College Decisions

2019

May 1st has come and passed, which means only one thing for Northwood’s seniors: they finally know where they will be attending college! For those who are not aware, May 1st was the deadline for all seniors to declare their college choices. Now, some of our senior hockey players at Northwood will be taking a gap year, meaning that instead of going to college next year, they will be playing U20 hockey at a high level. But for many of the seniors here at Northwood, this is it. They’re almost done with high school.

To celebrate the fast-approaching end of the four–or five–years of high school, I interviewed a few of our seniors.

Kevin Quinn ’19

Kevin Quinn ‘19 has decided to attend Oswego State University. Quinn said, “I chose Oswego because of the affordability. Not being in debt for the rest of my life is important to me. Also, the school have a really good communications program, which is what I want to study in College.” Quinn plans to get a masters degree in Broadcasting and Business Administration in five years. “Overall, I feel like I did a good job of executing what I wanted to achieve here at Northwood. And now, I’m off to the next stage of my life,” he added.

Grey Pfefferkorn ‘19

Grey Pfefferkorn ‘19 is attending Clarkson University. “Clarkson has a strong business program, and I got a $50,000 scholarship,” said Pfefferkorn. “I plan on getting my majors in Accounting there. Although I’m still on the fence, I might choose to play club hockey there as well.”

Chris Athanasiadis ‘19

Senior Chris Athanasiadis is excited to go to Saint Mary’s College of California. “I’m not sure yet what I’m going to study at Saint Mary’s, but it will probably be either Business or Marketing. And though I’m still waiting to hear back, I think that I’ll also be able to play Division I soccer there,” commented Athanasiadis. The best part about going to college for him is that he will be in California, which means “beautiful weather, lots of trees, and pretty girls!”

Josh Waters ’19

Senior Joshua Waters ‘19 is heading off to Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire. Water said, “I’m not quite sure what I am going to study there yet, but I think that I’m going for Economics.” The reason why he chose Dartmouth was not only because of the strong academics the school offers. “When I toured there, all of the faculty were really nice, and the Division I hockey coaches were very interested in me, which altogether made the school feel like the right fit for me,” said Waters.

All in all, it appears that the Senior Class of Northwood has a pretty firm grasp on where they will be attending in the fall. As the Northwood community prepares to say goodbye to these dear friends of ours and watch them take their next big step in this world, we wish them all the best of luck in both their college ambitions and in their lives thereafter.
