Humans of Northwood: Jack Schlifke ‘20

I’m from Penfield, New York, and my favorite TV show is All American. At Northwood, I did a PG year and played on the Junior Team. My first impression of Northwood was that it was a tightly knit community. At Northwood, everyone is outgoing, so you never feel left out of anything. This impression hasn’t changed one bit, and I don’t see it changing anytime soon.

My experience at Northwood has been a great one. I made so many new friends and met so many cool people from all over the world. If I had to pick a favorite memory, I think it’d be the road trips with the JRT boys. There isn’t much I didn’t like about Northwood. I did always want more free time, but I knew that was something I’d have to give up if I wanted to play hockey. And I was perfectly okay with that.

I’ll miss all the friendships I made at Northwood. I can’t imagine not seeing my buddies every day, but I know those friendships will last a long long time.

In the near future, I’ll be playing a year of Juniors for the Jersey Hitmen NCDC team.
