Ian Sloan '12

Ian Sloan, was an undergraduate student of University of Maryland from September of 2012 to May of 2016.

Lastly he graduated with Academic Honors, making the Dean's List in his last semester.

When asked how Calverton contributed to Ian's college experience, he said,

"The Calverton School contributed to my collegiate experience through enhancing three components: time management, devotion to academic integrity, and perseverance for accomplishing challenges. Throughout my undergraduate years, I was involved in various campus activities that occasionally tested my perception of what was the highest priority, but I conclusively understood it was my academics. My devotion to academic integrity at Calverton was enhanced by my roles in the University Student Judiciary, which focused on maintaining and enforcing the University of Maryland's Code of Student Conduct and the Code of Academic Integrity. I was academically challenged each semester because of me covering new info in the classes required for my major but also in Sociology and Women's Studies classes. I strived to have the perseverance in understanding each field of study similar to how I confronted the various subjects at Calverton, which was to evaluate when it was appropriate to use similar or different learning methods between each of the given fields of study.
