Humans of Northwood: Eli Devereaux ‘20

The only thing I dislike about Northwood is the food. But other than that, Northwood has given me friendship bonds that I’ll never forget and experiences that will last. I’ve loved all of my three years at Northwood. It’s been my home away from my home in Webster, New York.

Before Northwood, I attended a public high school, so the biggest difference between that school and Northwood was definitely the boarding aspect. At Northwood, I got to live with the boys and become close with my team. Another important difference was the sports programs. Northwood has given me opportunities in hockey that I could never have received before.

Although I missed my family and my family missed me, choosing Northwood was easy. Northwood offered me not only all the educational opportunities but also great high-level hockey. There were a lot of new guys that joined the program this year. But we quickly became close and made it into a pretty special year. The boys are something I’m going to miss the most.

Once I graduate, I’d like to play college hockey.
