RAISE YOUR GLASS: Congratulations to the Adroit Class of 2016!

Every year, we at The Adroit Journal witness a brilliant class of high school seniors apply and head off to college. We’re honored to share the matriculation list of this year’s class of senior mentorship students and staff readers!

Columbia University and the University of Pennsylvania snagged the most Adroit students this year, with five seniors headed to each. In their wake, Stanford UniversityPrinceton UniversityBrown University, and Yale University each snagged three Adroit students.

We wish each of the below thirty-six students the best as they embark on their next chapters, and hope they’ll stay in touch! (We have a feeling they will.)
