BISB Alumni Shares Transition to College Life

March 12, 2015

When it came time for Nathan Warner to take his first college economics course, he was nervous. His professor was notoriously challenging, and the class is considered one of the hardest at Brigham Young University in Utah.

Luckily for Nathan, however, the course went smoothly, a fact he attributes at least in part to his experience in the IB Diploma Programme at the British International School of Boston, a Boston private school.

"I think academically I was prepared," he said Wednesday. "I was definitely more prepared for the college classes than others."

Socially, Nathan said, moving from a small graduating class at BISB to a large university like Brigham Young was a big change. But he said he navigated the transition smoothly and is loving college life.

"BYU did a great job of helping me transition," he said. "The system they have in place, you do a lot of activities with the people in your hall, a lot of "get to know you" stuff. They really give you a lot of opportunities."

Nathan is continuing his studies of economics and finance, a career path he became interested in while studying at the British International School of Boston.
