I heard about Trine because I had a friend who was  planning on attending. When I started to look more into Trine, I fell in love with the size. On my visits, I realized very quickly how welcoming this campus is. At my high school, we were all a big family. I still get that similar vibe here, and Trine has truly become my second home. “It’s a Trine thing.”

608d9c33-3577-44c2-84dc-ed128883773dMy name is Taylor Keasey and I am a Chatard Alumna. I am now a freshman at Marian University.  It wasn’t always easy getting to where I am today with school. I’ve been the kid to dread going and to complain about it. My freshman year of high school at Bishop Chatard is where I blossomed into a good student. Once senior year hit, I definitely struggled more than I did previously. You get all these college deadlines thrown at you and you get stressed. All I have to say is take a deep breath and take it one thing at a time. Make sure to take your SAT/ACT taken as early as the beginning of junior year. Take it as many times as you need to, to improve your scores. (more…)

How Did I Get Here?

By: Sami Katrakatra

My name is Sami Katra. I am now a freshman at Marian University and am a Chatard alumna. I love going to school here and the struggle I went through my senior year of high school was so worth it. My struggle began with the fact that I took my SAT later than everybody else so I had a lot of stress with all the deadlines for college. It was bad and it got to the point where I had other requirements from Marian in order to be accepted. My scores from the first SAT were low and I had to take it again. They were a lot better but I had to write a paper to Marian explaining why they should accept me and explain why my scores came in late. I even thought of other options rather than college. Not that not going to college is necessarily bad, but I knew it was my path. So, some advice: in order to know what school you are going to for sure and get accepted by Christmas, take the SAT or ACT early! Take the test as many times as you can! The more times you take the test, the better scores you get and the easier it is to get in to college.

I think Chatard did an awesome job of preparing me for college. (more…)
