What are you enjoying about your college experience?
The thing that I am enjoying most about college so far is being able to spend time with my friends who share my interests.

How do you feel your time at Legacy helped prepare you for college?
The main thing that was helpful was the university model schedule.

How was your adjustment to the college schedule based on coming from a university-model school?
The university model layout of having different classes on T/Th verses MWF was helpful, but it was still a bit of a jump to adjust to the due dates and schedules with holes in between classes.

What are some of your fond memories/favorite experiences while at Legacy?
Some of my fond memories include helping with the FOIL plays and events, talking with some of my teachers, and hanging out at Chick-fil-A with my friends.

If you had to describe Legacy in one or two sentences to somebody, what would you say?
Legacy is a university model school with a schedule that allows you to decide how to focus study time. The teachers are supportive and followers of Christ.

How does your spiritual life play a role in your college experience?
At a Christian university, most of the students are open about their faith, and discussions about the scriptures are frequent.

Do you feel Legacy helped to grow you spiritually and for doing God’s work?
During my time at Legacy, I learned to define myself by my relationship with Christ and to let my actions show that relationship. I appreciate the teachers that prayed with and for me throughout the years. That made a difference in my spiritual walk.

Is there anything else you would like to share with Legacy families or those interested in Legacy?
Attending Legacy allows you to spend quality time with your family. Even though much of that time is spent on academics, it is invaluable.
