    Lawrenceville’s boys’ lacrosse team concluded its season in May, but not goalie Griffin Thompson ’16. Thompson was one of only 100 high school lacrosse players, all rising juniors, invited to attend Nike’s “The Ride” camp in Beaverton, Ore. From July 19-23, the student-athletes received specialized training, coaching, and faced off against each other in scrimmages and games. They also met with top NCAA and pro lacrosse players. The camp, Thompson said, “… is certainly high up on my list as one of the best lacrosse experiences I've had.”

While even the most die-hard of farming purists wouldn’t last longer than a few days on a diet of beets and kohlrabi, the proverb speaks volumes about what my fellow interns and I have gained from our summer stint at the Big Red Farm.

    Starting at any new school, especially as a boarding student, can be stressful. New teachers, living away from home, and often a completely different way of teaching and learning can be more challenging than attending your local high school.
