We asked Aidan:


What aspect of your college/university are you most excited about?
I am most excited about the many different classes SCU offers; there's so many options!

What one tip about the college application process would you share with seniors or their parents?
Start and finish your applications as early as possible, it's a much less stressful experience that way.

What advice would you share with soon-to-be high school seniors as they begin their senior year?
Work hard. It does get harder to focus as you approach graduation, but as long as you're putting an effort into your work, you're sure to have fun.

What is one fun fact about you?
A fun fact about me is that I love to read superhero comics. Ever since my dad showed me his old collection when I was four, I've followed Marvel and DC's superheroes in both their comics and movies.
