A senior at Francis Lewis High School, Andrew Ho reported having trouble adapting to college enrollment. 


“It was really hard to understand what I needed to do for college without having help in person.” Ho said “It was honestly hard doing everything over Zoom and figuring out college stuff all by myself because my parents never went to college in the States.” 


Ho told FLHS News that his perspective on school closures changed as remote learning continued.


“Never thought I would say this, but I’m missing going to school in person.” Ho said. “At first I was pretty happy ‘cause I didn’t have to go in person, but it’s even worse if I am at home, bored, doing nothing and not having any social contact and fooling around at school.”


Declining to share his college in the fall, Ho said that he wanted to spend more time with his friends at venues like prom.


“I honestly looked forward to prom the most.” Ho added. “It would have been a great way to end senior year and spend time with my friends before we all [had gone] our separate ways.”
