“The class of 2020 has impressed me from the start,” said Director of College Counseling Dan Monahan.  “When we started working together in their junior year, these students knew what they wanted.  Having to choose a college in the midst of an unprecedented international pandemic still didn’t shake them.  In many ways, it strengthened their choices. These students picked the institutions that they know will be the best fit for them.  They paid close attention to how the colleges corresponded with them through this and made their decisions to enroll. Their determination to stay positive and move forward will be remembered for years to come.”
