School is officially back on track with new and returning students, both international and domestic, settling down for this new year. The Mirror spoke with several brand-new students to learn they are adjusting to life at Northwood  

An interesting student we want to share with you is Diego Alfonso Rios ‘25 from Chile. “I think Northwood is really nice, I like the faculty and the campus. It’s not very easy for me because I’m not used to English, but I think at the end of the day it will be better for me in many ways and it’ll help my future,” Rios said. Diego’s interview shows  how  Northwood  provides  students with many opportunities culturally and academically to further yourself  

Another student who brings a unique view is sophomore Gracie Hurlbut. She is part of the girl’s hockey team and appreciates how quickly the team has bonded. “The school has started great. The girls have been very welcoming and I’m enjoying my time,” Hurlbut said. 

Staying with hockey, The Mirror also interviewed Parker Asbridge ‘24 who is on the Boys Prep hockey team. He described his start to Northwood as welcoming and said he’s enjoying meeting new people. He’s focused on hockey: “Good first weekend. The last two games against Mount were rough but looking to bounce back this week.” 

Northwood has begun and the staff of The Mirror hope that this year can be the best year in Northwood’s history. GO HUSKIES!
