"The most important thing I've learned from my time at Rauner was how to be self-disciplined. College became a reality for me in the summer after my sophomore year when I participated in the Noble Network Right Angle program and attended the University of Maryland-College Park. My first taste of college made me realize that all of my hard work would pay off because I would be able to attend a great university. Also, taking Advance Placement classes like US History, Calculus, and American Literature has made college academics a reality for me."
 

 

 

Carter

Class of 2010
Attending: Lafayette College Easton PA
Major/Area of study:  Double major in Government & Law and History

Activities/clubs involved with on campus: Carter is on the men’s rugby team, an official for intramural basketball and flag football and a member of LIME (Lafayette Initiative for Malagasy Education). LIME is a peer-to-peer mentoring program between Lafayette students and high school students from Madagascar to help prepare students for the process of applying to colleges in the US. Over the summer of 2012, he interned with the Cook County State's Attorney where he worked side by side with prosecutors on cases and in court.

"Rauner prepared me for college in a number of ways. One way that stands out most to me, as I continue my college career, were the goals they had us set. In advisory, we would set two week goals and in college, since you have your whole course syllabus, it's hard to do too much or even feel a sense of accomplishment. However, taking note of your small accomplishments will encourage and reinforce your future success."
