Social life at Boarding School?
Hi! I was admitted as a sophomore to Andover and I am so beyond excited, but as September draws near, I'm worrying about the little things more and more.
I don't know if this is actually the case, but these schools do seem like bubbles. I'm moving from a life that allowed me to interact with and become close to people who I didn't go to school with and see every day. Are we going to be locked in just the school's community or is there room to branch out?
Off topic, but I'm also moving from a more tropical place - our winters get down to the lower fifties at worst. I'm planning on waiting until I get up there to buy supplies, but any suggestions that I wouldn't think of as an innocent Southerner?
