Hallie '12, is registered and ready to return to campus later this week! She writes, "I am excited to return to campus most because I think about it so often. Campus was such a home to all of us, even day students - from sitting with friends under the stars on the hills to walking through the halls of Mitchell and poking your head in each office to say hi. I felt so nurtured by our community, and I'm excited to see the new classes learning and growing in those same spaces!"
Anise '07, attended our alumni gathering in Washington, D.C., on March 8th. Now, she is signed up and ready to return to campus for her 10th reunion! She writes, "Asheville School provided me with some of the dearest friendships I've made over the years and prepared me to manage both academics and extracurriculars in college. I'm looking forward to seeing my classmates at this year's alumni weekend. Go Blues!"
