One of the best ways for alumni to help us spread the word about The Island School during their transition back home is to write an article on their experience and submit it to their local paper. Not only will it help attract the next round of Island School applicants and students, but it also can act as the perfect avenue for alumni to share their experience with others, without having to retell the same stories and answer the same questions over and over. It can be difficult for alumni to articulate how powerful and transformative their semester-long journey was once they return home. Putting it in writing and sharing it with the local community is a great way to help ease the transition home, while spreading awareness about the program.
Spring 2014 alumna, Catherine Argyrople did just that. Her recent article on her experience was published her local newspaper in Weston, MA. You can read the article here!
