Fresh Starts: “I’m Coming Here to Get Uncomfortable.”

Meet the Class of 2012: Nathan Shin


Click on the video above to learn more about Nathan Shin (SHA’12).

In the first weeks of college, every freshman faces the same questions: what do you bring with you, and what do you leave behind?

We’re not talking about just posters and clothes and prom pictures. What elements of your personality will be important in this new life? What high school traits or behaviors would you rather do without? Which friends will be by your side for this four-year journey and which ones will drift away? What new interests will sustain you? What do you hope to escape from?

In the video above, Nathan Shin (SHA’12) of Arcadia, Calif., talks about venturing into unfamiliar territory: the East Coast, a diverse school, a region where he’s looking forward to seeing snow fall.

Meet more of the Class of 2012: Shakeela Najjar, and Lauren Chanel Allen.
