Is it hard to meet new friends? What are the girls like?
“As an eighth grader, I know I wouldn’t have believed it, but everyone makes new friends once they get to the Mount.”
“It isn’t hard to meet people at all….everyone who comes to the Mount doesn’t know a lot of other people, so they are very open and hospitable. If you act like yourself, making friends isn’t difficult at all.”
“My fears about losing my social life were overblown. I was able to make new friends and still remained close with my grammar school friends.”
“At first I worried that I wasn’t going to like anyone here, that everyone was different from me, that I wasn’t going to have any friends and I’m not going to see my old friends, but you meet people that your personality goes with and you make friends!”
