Where Are They Now? Kaitlyn Coddington

What do you remember about your high school graduation?

Thinking to myself, “Please don’t fall, please don’t fall.”

What do you miss most about high school?

I had some really great teachers.  It was awesome to be able to go back to those teachers for advice.  You don’t always get that in a forty person lecture.

Are you continuing your education or working, or both?

I’m continuing my education at Emerson College in downtown Boston as a Writing, Literature, and Publishing major.  I’m also working at The Loft in Boston and as a tour guide at Fallingwater on breaks.

Do you feel that high school prepared you for your work now and what has been some surprising things about work/school?

I was pleasantly surprised at how prepared I was for college.  So far, I’ve taken lit and writing classes, a speech class, and psychology.  I think the respective teachers I had at UHS are definitely doing something right.

Are you friends with the same people from high school and have you made new friends?

I’ve kept in touch with some people from home, but the distance has made it hard to remain close to everyone.  I’ve made a lot of friends from across the country, including Texas, Massachusetts, and New York.

Have you seen the completed renovations?

I have only seen part of the renovations, but what I have seen looks great!

Do you have any words of advice for current students?

Relax.  The scariest part about college is applying.  When you get to school, everyone is in the same boat as you.  Take advantage of the fresh start to be whoever you want.
