CLARK, NJ - Arthur L. Johnson High School alumni recently came back to the school to share their experiences about applying to college and attending their first semester. 

The alumni were part of a panel set up by the Guidance department to interact with current juniors and seniors to help them understand what lies ahead.

“The alumni panel is a way to bridge the gap between students who recently left ALJ and students who are leaving soon. Their insight is invaluable and relevant. We hope the current ALJ students take in what the alumni have to say and consider their advice as they decide on their plans for next year,” stated school counselor Erica Stasio.

The panel, led by Stasio, included a series of topics including choosing a school, living away from home, and deciding on a major. Other topics included how ALJ prepared them for college and applying for scholarships.
