Recent Alums Return to Campus for Rebel Rendezvous
This year's Rebel Rendezvous was the first day back from Christmas Break, Wednesday, Jan. 4. With our seniors in the midst of college decisions, and our juniors almost ready to start their applications, this event is a great opportunity to let them ask recent alumni questions about the application process and college life. This year's event brought 35 members of the classes of 2015 and 2016 to campus. Juniors and Seniors were broken into groups with faculty moderators and the alumni.
In addition to these generalized small-group discussions, there were two specialty sessions this year with alumni who opted for service academies/ROTC or who play college sports. Students who are interested in one of those paths were able to ask more specific questions and gain insights into how the processes for those situations are different than normal. In the class of 2017, 4 students received Congressional nominations for U.S. Military Academies (West Point, Naval Academy, and Merchant Marines), and signing days for athletic committments are coming up soon.
Thank you to the alumni who helped out with this event!
