MONONA — What are the best ways to study in college? How do you choose a roommate? How challenging are final exams? What high school classes best prepare you for college? Those were just some of the questions that MFL MarMac High School students had answered last Monday as the school hosted its first Panel Discussion among current students and several currently enrolled in college classes.

“Let them know what it’s really like making the transition from high school to college,” he said.
Leslie Henkes, a library associate at the high school, helped Meyer plan the event and executed a lot of the leg work for the project.
