Connor Tibbe, an alumni of Uniontown Area High School, is currently a freshman at Waynesburg University. He is majoring in History and is intending on furthering his education by attending graduate school. Connor admits that college can be extremely stressful especially finals week but, he says that on off days “College is fun. Sitting around with friends and watching Netflix is probably one of the best feelings after a long week.” He is enjoying his days as a college student and can honestly say he doesn’t miss the high school days!
If Connor would have two words to tell the seniors of UHS, it would be time management. He said that ” Your teachers aren’t going to baby you in the slightest bit. If you keep track of your assignments and stay focused, everything will fall into place. But, if that’s not the case…Good luck. ”
