What are you enjoying about your college experience?
It has been nice to be able to be away from home and have more responsibility over my own time and choices.

How do you feel your time at Legacy helped prepare you for college?
Challenging classes helped prepare me for the course load as well as time management.

How was your adjustment to the college schedule based on coming from a university-model school?
I feel that having a university model has helped me greatly as it got me ready for how my courses are scheduled in college as well as the amount of work given.

What are some of your fond memories/favorite experiences while at Legacy?
Some of my favorite memories at Legacy would be the 2017 state playoff run we made in football as well as having a very good baseball season as a team. However, the best memories were the ones made with friends in class as well as out of class at practices or just hanging out.

If you had to describe Legacy in one or two sentences to somebody, what would you say?
It is a school where no matter who you are you will find a group who is always willing to accept new people in.

How does your spiritual life play a role in your college experience?
Being a Christian, you occasionally feel like you are outnumbered at a college campus but being true to my beliefs and trusting in God has kept my faith strong and helped me grow as a person.

Do you feel Legacy helped to grow you spiritually and for doing God’s work?
Attending Legacy right before going to college helped me grow spiritually because I was in a community of students that shared the same beliefs as me.

Is there anything else you would like to share with Legacy families or those interested in Legacy?
Though I only attended Legacy for a short time I developed relationships with friends that are life long and strengthened existing ones even more.
