When I graduated from high school, I wasn’t planning to attend college right away. I was planning on taking a gap year.
In the spring, before graduation, I considered a large four-year public institution, but a part of me didn’t really want to go there (1) because of its proximity to home and (2) because of its size.
I also didn’t think I was prepared mentally or financially. Then Dan Connolly from the Admissions Office at Silver Lake College called about orientation, and I began thinking seriously about Silver Lake.
