An Examination of the Academic and Social Success of Formerly Homeschooled Students at UNC Asheville is based on journalistic interviews conducted within the UNCA community. This creative project examines the individually-experienced transition from the often variable, independent education style of homeschooling to a highly-rated liberal arts university. It is a journalistic exploration into both subliminal and obtrusive perceptions and myths surrounding this category of non-traditional students. This presentation offers a sincere, sometimes comical, journalistic exploration of the stigma surrounding students who were homeschooled. Through interviews with faculty, parents and members of the general student body, the truth is revealed. Content includes: readily-admitted stereotypes and perceptions from professors and students, tales of embarrassing or frustrating encounters as a previously-homeschooled UNCA student, myth debunking, and plenty of photos.
