Grauer Alumni Panel Speaks About College Life

On Thursday, March 28, the Grauer Alumni Office hosted a panel of 8 Grauer alumni students, including Lillie Meyer '16 (University of Oregon), Matteo Cometti '17 (Cal Lutheran), Jonah Gertz '17 (UC Santa Cruz), Max Greiner '17 (San Diego State), Aubree Ochoa '17 (UCSD), Spencer Wirick '17 (University of Chicago), Sierra Pia '18 (Seattle University), and Estelle Smith '18 (Cal Lutheran). 

The alumni students were a very impressive, confident, and well-spoken group. They talked with Grauer juniors, seniors, and parents about their college experiences, on topics including how Grauer prepared them for college, becoming adults and advocating for themselves, roommate experiences, life at large schools vs. life at small schools, and much more. Some of their advice about college life included "be open to new experiences, make mistakes and learn from them, learn to be organized, take care of yourself with eating right and getting enough sleep, find something you love and pursue it, and have fun!"

Special thanks to Sheila Wirick, Grauer’s Alumni Relations Officer, for organizing this event for our Grauer community, and to Shelley Boniwell, Grauer’s College Counselor, and Alicia Tembi, Grauer History teacher, for being the moderators of the event!
