Corey Hoydic is 18 years old, and he is currently a senior at Cathedral Prep. There is a lot more to Corey than just being a good student and friend. Every one of his answers was well thought out and very enlightening and inspirational. I learned that he possesses many talents and has many aspirations that I was unaware of. I know that I learned a lot about him from the interview, and I hope that you will learn more about him and his life from this article.
To start off, Corey told me how much he loves Prep and how thankful he is that he is able to attend Prep. His favorite thing about Prep is the atmosphere that it provides, namely the brotherhood that Prep students experience. He said that although he has a specific group of friends, all of his Prep brothers are a part of his life and will be forever. Prep has helped him in many ways and has greatly prepared him for college and his career. When I asked him how he has changed since he started at Prep, he responded, “I think I have become an overall better person. Prep has taught me how to learn and do things on my own, and I have also grown in my faith at Prep.” This is why a Prep education is so valuable, it develops and strengthens you as a whole person.
Like many other seniors, Corey has big plans for the future. He is undecided on where he wants to spend his college years, but he thinks that Notre Dame would be the best fit for him. He is still waiting to hear back on an admission decision, but his solid academic record and SAT scores should make him a shoo-in. As far as a career he is still unsure, but he is considering engineering. What he does know is that he wants to meet a lovely lady, settle down, start a family, and be happy. He also wants to have a successful career so that he can make a lot of money and support his family. “It’s a good combination, all those things together,” said Hoydic.
As far as interests go, Corey’s favorite activity is playing guitar. He has been playing for the past eight years, and he has even been a member of several bands. Music is very important to Corey, and playing guitar and writing music is a way in which he can express himself to others. Currently, his favorite band is the metal rock group Periphery. Periphery provides Corey with a lot of inspiration and he said about the band, “…they are something fresh, something new, and they are definitely worth checking out.”
As you can see, Corey Hoydic is not just any 18-year-old. He is a very talented individual who has a lot going for him. I wish him the best of luck in the future, and I would like to thank him for participating in this interview.
