On January 3, 2018, three members of the MLWGS class of 2014 returned to their alma mater to talk to current student about college. Two of the alumni, Christopher Benos and Hannah Lyons, attend the University of Virginia. Samantha Marquez is majoring in psychology on the neuroscience track at Yale. They talked about everything from choosing a college to choosing a major (or not), from studying abroad to thinking about grad school, from workload to extracurricular activities. They encouraged students to make sure their choice of college and their choices in college worked for them as individuals. As college tends to be a major preoccupation at Maggie Walker, it was kind of these three young alumni to offer such specific and reassuring advice to high schoolers who are going to be embarking on their own collegiate careers in no time at all.
