Humans of Northwood: Magdalena Erbenova ‘20

With the goal of graduating from a university in the U.S after finishing my high school years at Northwood, I made the move away from home in Czech Republic. I decided to attend Northwood for many reasons: the location of the school, excellent academics, and the long hockey season.

I was able to get a whole new experience at Northwood, enjoying every moment and every aspect of it. I won’t forget it. I was able to see the difference between Northwood and my old school, the main one being that the faculty are definitely more open and friendly. The school systems are completely different, making it a whole different world. There is one similarity: the people and things I miss both when I am away. I especially miss my friends back home, but after I left Northwood I miss the friends I made there. I especially miss my art classes.

There wasn’t much I didn’t like about Northwood. It is a special place, but I would have to say the food some days wasn’t great. The girls’ hockey program had an amazing season, which I loved, even if we always had pizza for dinner after games.
