Alumni Joey Karlik (2018) is closing in on the end of his first semester at the University of Texas. Karlik is majoring in Radio-Film Television and Journalism.
Karlik participates in Longhorn Late Nights, which are live skits and shows done by students at UT. This show is completely run by students. The skits are written, acted, and practiced all by members. The workload is much larger than high school and the difficulty increases drastically.
“The workload is bigger but you have more time to do it,” Karlik said. “The difficulty is amped up a ton. In high school, you memorize and apply your knowledge. College is not only that, but also creating and explaining as well.”
Overall the jump for Karlik has been very different from high school. The surroundings, classes and work is all new. Karlik thinks college is very different from high school, and it may even be better than high school.
“College is definitely a new experience. Personally I think everyone should have it,” Karlik said. “You do have all the adult experiences but with some help and guidance. I’ve only been here for half a semester and I can already tell that it’s gonna be something better than anything I have experienced.”
