Sophomores Transition to Alexandria City High School Campus

With nearly four weeks of school complete, students are beginning to get into a comfortable rhythm of balancing classes and everyday school hassle. But it was not always that way. After an entire school year of zoom calls and loads of seemingly endless virtual activities, the majority of us find ourselves back in the building. But for the sophomores, the transition to the Alexandria City High School campus seemed more nerve-racking than ever. 

When stepping on the A.C. campus for the first time as a student there, sophomore Ryan Canady found herself nervous, and like many other sophomores, very lost. “I kept checking my map,” she says as she depicts her first encounter with the maze of hallways and staircases. She described the first day as “busy” and “crowded”. Upon being asked if she had ever been lost, she bluntly said, “yes, and I still do [get lost].”

But not everything about the first week was a strain of perplexity. When it came to the first week of school, the social aspect was the best part for a lot of sophomores. “Seeing new friends for sure,” said Aidan Hill, another sophomore. “Ice breakers make everyone want to die,” jokes Canady, “But I’m glad to sit with my friends at lunch again.” 

It’s no surprise that transitioning from a year at home to the main campus at A.C. is a major adjustment. But some students did not find the change as daunting. “It wasn’t too rough,” Canady says. “Waking up at different times wasn’t too bad. It only really took me two days to transition.” 

Sophomore Hannah Kidd enjoyed seeing people. “I forgot how stressful being in school can be. But I like red and blue days because it gives me an extra day to do homework,” she says. 

Though the first weeks of school for the sophomores have been a stir of nerves and confusion, Canady, Hill, and Kidd are all excited for the year ahead of them. The transition has not been the easiest, but as sophomores get into the flow of the new school year, they are finding more and more to look forward to. “I feel nervous but weirdly happy,” Aidan said. The last year has been anything but ordinary and this year may not feel ideal, but it’s nonetheless exciting.
