I plan to enroll at Taft for the 2021-2022 school year as a repeat sophomore, and I wanted to create this topic so that future Rhinos, such as myself, could get a first-hand “look” as to what it’s like at Taft from its current students and parents. So, to get us started, I have a few questions that I would love some answers to — you may answer as many or as little as you’d like. You can start by “introducing yourself” (current grade you’re in, how long you’ve been at Taft, etc.) before answering the questions if you’re up for it!
- What is the overall culture like? Is it cutthroat/competitive?
- Would you say its stronger in STEM or in humanities?
- How is the food?
- In the first few days/weeks of your first year at Taft, was it easy for you to make friends? What kind of ice breakers/activities did they have you do in order to start conversations and help build close bonds/friendships?
- Generally, how does the school lean politically? (Answers to this won’t affect my decision, I’m asking out of pure curiosity, TBH.)
- How are the dorms?
- What is student life like after school/extracurriculars? How do you spend your weekends, and what do you do/where do you go when you’re off campus?
- Relatively speaking, how much homework do you expect to have each night? In other words, how long does it normally take you to complete it?
- What do you like the most about Taft, and what do you like the least/what’s something you would change if you could, and why?
- Do you have any other comments, tips, and/or advice you’d like to share about Taft?
Thank you all, in advance, for sharing! I look forward to seeing and meeting you all soon
