Reflections and Advice:

1.) What do you think makes your school unique relative to other boarding schools?
I wouldn't of graduated if it wasn't for Howe. I wouldn't of landed and retired from the medical field if it wasn't for Howe. I wouldn't of gotten a quality education if it wasn't for Howe. I wouldn't of developed excellent life skills and discipline if it wasn't for Howe. I wouldn't of gotten into a quality college if it wasn't for Howe. I wouldn't of developed terrific lifelong friends if it wasn't for Howe. I wouldn't want to imagine where I would be today if it wasn't for Howe. Now you wouldn't want to deprive your child or children of any of this would you? Enroll today and make a huge, quality difference in your children's life. Thank you Howe.
2.) What was the best thing that happened to you in boarding school?
I wouldn't be where I am in life today if it wasn't for Howe. I went from a unfocused youth to a prepared adult at my time at Howe. Don't think any other schools can make that claim. You can earn so many rewards and trophies there thru hard work, and many students did.
3.) What might you have done differently during your boarding school experience?
The only thing I would of done differently would of been to attend Howe earlier. I encourage more parents and students to enroll at Howe. Prepare for life now.
4.) What did you like most about your school?
That even after graduating in 1993 I am still honored to call myself a Howe Alumni. I love that Howe prepared me for life. I love that I have some of my fellow alumni on speed dial.
5.) Do you have any final words of wisdom for visiting or incoming students to your school?
Delta company dorm rocks. Want some great French fries? Try the canteen. Bottom line don't pass up Howe if you have a chance to go there your life will never be the same.

Academics:

1.) Describe the academics at your school - what did you like most about it?
I loved how I was challenged and rewarded in my studies throughout my time at Howe. I also like how the academics there made college a breeze, I left Howe prepared. I think Howe has the best teachers in the world, none will ever come close. They are challenging and understanding at the same time and all around great people. Excellent diversity when it comes to classes. Simply the best.

Athletics:

1.) Describe the athletics at your school - what did you like most about it?
I loved how competitive the sports arena there is. Excellent coaches. You really are part of a unique team. There was nothing better then hearing the whole cadet Corp roaring in the gym during a basketball game. Great athletics department. Sports are huge and admired at Howe.

Art, Music, and Theatre:

1.) Describe the arts program at your school - what did you like most about it?
The choir was excellent and was very active. Excellent participation from the Corp. Very deep range in this field. Great experience.

Extracurricular Opportunities:

1.) Describe the extracurriculars offered at your school - what did you like most about it?
Love the diversity and participation in extra curricular activities. No better place then JROTC to have these and it showed. Plenty to choose from, whether it was academic, athletic, or social.

Dorm Life:

1.) Describe the dorm life in your school - what did you like most about it?
The camaraderie was the best and really does prepare you for life after high school and beyond. Excellent conditions and dorms. Made lifelong friends from there. Felt like a family and community.

Dining:

1.) Describe the dining arrangements at your school.
I loved the choices of foods and quality. You never left hungry. Dining with your brothers and sisters was great. Better then college campuses. Another life preparer.

Social and Town Life:

1.) Describe the school's town and surrounding area.
The nice quaint village of Howe is a small walk away. Your right near the Indiana and Michigan border. A great and safe area to attend school.
2.) Describe the social life at your school - what did you like most about it?
How diverse and real it was. You meet a lot of great students and educators. The canteen was the funnest place to hang out. The social life also improved your academic life.
