Recent Marian Grads revisit campus on their Winter Break
Chicago Heights, IL-(ENEWSPF)- The Marian Catholic Alumni Association, along with the Marian Catholic Guidance Department, presented their annual College Day Friday, January 9, 2015. More than 40 young alumni returned to the halls of Marian Catholic during their college winter break to speak with the junior and senior classes about their college experience.
The current Marian Catholic students had the opportunity to ask and get a feeling for what the next step entails. Questions ranged from, “Have you ever had the urge of coming home?” to “Did you feel that Marian prepared you going into college?” All questions were answered with great integrity to ease the minds of current students about entering college.
Due to the weather, the original scheduled date was forced to be moved because of school cancellations and the young alums continued to show support with their attendance at the event. “It’s always great to see all the kids come back to school. It’s a true testament to Marian Catholic when recent grads are continuing to show interest considering the recent weather issues,” Vince Krydynski ’81, Vice President of Institutional Advancement said. Recent alums were split into groups of three or four in classrooms.
The young alums came from colleges and universities across the entire Midwest and even some further destinations who had a little extra time before heading back to school. The University of Notre Dame, Loyola University, Indiana University and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign were just a handful of the local schools that were represented by recent Marian Catholic alums. Harvard University, Texas Christian University, and the University of Missouri campus insiders were represented by recent Marian graduates.
“Coming back to Marian makes me feel at home,” said Sophia Sesto ’14, Texas Christian University. “This is where I was taught so much, it was Marian Catholic that prepared me for what I currently encounter on a daily basis.”
