Humans of Northwood: Eric Swartz ‘20


I like making funny noises with my friend,s and when we go skiing, I usually try to do stupid things. I’m Erik Swartz and I’m from Brookline,Massachusetts. I came to Northwood because it has a smaller learning environment, where the teachers can focus on the students more one on one. Plus it’s in a beautiful environment. My experience was very good, I made friends that I still keep in contact with even though we are in quarantine.

Northwood also opened me up to trying new things. I had never skied before and Northwood taught me how to ski pretty well. A major difference is the student to teacher ratio, because there are far fewer students at Northwood compared to my old school. Another difference is the personality of everyone because people at Northwood are a lot more friendly than people at my other school.

I did miss having great meals in Boston and sleeping in a comfortable bed. I would like to attend college and probably go into the computer science world or the financial world. I won’t forget all the great times I had skiing with friends and going out to dinner over the weekends on Main street during my time at Northwood.
