Involvement: Volleyball, Basketball, Softball
“I came to Walker’s my freshman year. It was my first time at in-person school since the start of the pandemic, so I was super nervous. The Cicerones at school really took the edge off of transferring to a new school where I didn’t know anyone, which is why I think they are so important. Since coming to Walker’s, I’ve tried to involve myself in lots of activities, like student council and sports, and met a lot of people!”
A unique experience I had was decorating the halls for Spirit Week. I didn’t expect to be so involved in school spirit, however I was proved wrong. The school spirit activities are super fun at Walker’s.
My favorite part of being a boarder at Walker’s is the community in the dorms. After being in the dorms for a while, you get very close with everyone and it becomes like a second family and you get close with a lot of people you normally wouldn’t be.
Just try everything! Putting yourself out there and signing up for as many activities as possible is a great way to make friends and find new interests. Also, try things even if you aren’t good at them because you could end up liking them!
