The bonds I made with my classmates created a nexus of my academic and social lives. Debates from philosophy class carried into lunch; conversations about calculus took place while watching swim meets. Having the same friends in my classes, clubs, and sports teams created a strong sense of [connection] between us. We studied together, worked together, played together, and grew together. This network of support got me through high school and continues to be there for me even as we each grow separately.
