Seniors Learn First-Year Survival Tips for College

The Storm King School senior class participated in the second workshop of the Roy ’99 Leadership Series on Monday, October 8, in the Walter Reade Jr. Theatre.

Ms. Marnie Hauser, Director of the Office of Orientation, Undergraduate Studies, at the University of South Florida (USF) talked to the students about Self Management – commitment, initiative, effort, and responsibility – as they face the stress of entering college. Ms. Hauser directs the office that provides orientation programs for first-year students, transfer students, international students and their families at USF, one of the largest Universities in the United States located in Tampa, FL. “We believe her insights will be a significant help to our students as they prepare for their transition to college next fall,” said Director of College Counseling Mrs. Martha Kwon.

The Roy ’99 Leadership Workshop Series is designed to help Storm King students develop a strong value for leadership and service in their daily lives. The series is named for Patrick Roy ‘99, a Storm King alumnus and young Naval recruit, who was killed in the line of duty while serving on the USS Cole during a terrorist attack in Yemen in 2001, less than a year and a half after graduating. A natural born leader, Roy’s life and service are commemorated each year at Storm King.
