The Freshman Experience

By Zane Mosby ‘20, Staff Writer

With so much information on the do’s and don’ts given to incoming freshmen, it can be hard to figure out what is most important. What should the freshmen class of 2020 to know as they begin their time at BMHS?

Mr. Brian Brower, Dean of Programs said that it may seem small, but hanging out in the freshman hallway is a major thing you should not do!

People are trying to navigate a congested space in a small amount of time so it is important to be respectful of others and “keep it movin.” When asked what some of the most common mistakes are that students make he said becoming over confident is a major one.

“It is important to be confident of course but humility is also important,” he said.

In the end he offered the most important piece of advice, “If you need help, just ask! There are plenty of resources available at the school from your teachers, to guidance department to the St. Joseph’s Center. Be sure to ask for help if you need it.”

For a student’s perspective, senior Kristen Franklin, class of 2017 was interviewed. Looking back, is there one thing that you wish you had known then that you know now? She said, “the small stuff, and the drama is not important and doesn’t matter. It may seem important at the time but ultimately it is not.”

She confided that she would have taken academics more seriously and offered the following advice to underclassmen: “Take a lot of pictures because the time goes by quickly!”
