Recent McCallie graduate Henry Michalak was featured in a Sept. 17 story in the Wall Street Journal that examined the college selection process of four graduating seniors during the coronavirus pandemic.

The story, titled “Choosing a College During Coronavirus: How Four Students Decided,” was part of a special College Rankings supplement of the national newspaper.

Mr. Michalak, who was a three-year boarder from Marietta, Ga., graduated from McCallie in July. He explained in the story how he applied and sought early admission at several colleges and universities and finally decided to attend Wofford College in Spartanburg, S.C.

About his decision, Mr. Michalak said, "Wofford became my first choice after my initial visit and it became clear that Wofford was the place for me after my Wofford Scholars interview. The way Wofford has handled admissions, registration, and orientation has only confirmed that I made the right decision and makes me even more excited to be part of the Terrier Class of 2024."
