Movember Raises Funds for Cancer Research

The boys and men of Northwood School have a distinctly scruffy look, as many of them have not shaved all month. It’s not mass civil disobedience in protest of the dress and grooming policies.

Humans of Northwood: Margot Rouquette

20180913_065129 (2)

“I am Margot Rouquette from Toulouse, France. I lived in Canada at a boarding school for the past two years, and when I first thought of coming to a boarding school in the US I was excited because I knew how things at a boarding school works. You get to meet a lot of new people. I choose Northwood because they have a great hockey program and the school is amazing. Sometimes I think about what I miss from my country — my family — but even though they are not physically with me, they are always supporting me. My goals are getting into a high-level college where I can continue playing hockey. I also want to make it to the French National Hockey Team. So far, I am enjoying Lake Placid it’s a really nice place where I love making friends, which has been easy as everyone here it’s very outgoing.”

Humans of Northwood: Paul Hou

“My name is Paul Hou. I am a 16 year old junior from Beijing. In my free time I like watching movies but what I mostly enjoy doing is playing video games, especially CS GO, with my friends. I chose coming to Northwood because its academic program but also because of the opportunity that students must interact with the natural environment. Something different here compared to China is the food and people. It is calm here with fewer people, although I still like it, but I miss my friends and the gastronomy from China. My main goal after Northwood is getting accepted into a good college in the US and continuing to studying here. So far, I have been liking Lake Placid. It’s a good place where people are friendly, and we have an awesome environment.”
