Members of recent graduating classes from Ward Melville High School returned to their alma mater this December to shed some light on college life and the acceptance process for the building’s current students. 

During the annual Alumni Day event, the returning Patriots shared sound advice with many students immersed in the college application and decision process. The alumni spoke about the fears and excitement they faced during their first semesters, how they selected their college and the challenges they encountered when making the transition from high school to college. 

Throughout the day, the alumni answered questions as well about their living situations, school size and academic requirements. Those who have already entered postgraduate professions addressed their transition to the job market.  

Some of the colleges represented during the event included Boston University, Columbia University, Cornell University, Duke University, Fashion Institute of Technology, Marist College, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Stony Brook University, University of Miami, University of Texas and the University of Vermont.
