Young adult homeschoolers form club, 5 August 2007, Daily Herald, Provo, Utah This group feels like they’ve known each other forever — and they’re not psychic.They’re members of LDS Homeschooled Singles, a group of young people from the Provo-Orem area.Julianna Hopkins formed the group earlier this year. It’s for any Latter-day Saint single adult who has been home schooled. The group meets periodically to have parties, play games, discuss books and hike.
The home-schooled students didn’t say their transition to college life was too hard. Smith said she had been through lots of different types of schooling so she was used to adjusting to new learning styles. McNair said he had a harder time.
One of his challenges was learning to glean information in an allotted time frame. He wanted to soak up as much information as possible before moving on.
“It really bit me hard as far as grades went. I wasn’t really willing to surrender the learning for the grade,” McNair said.
Hopkins said there are about 40 singles in the group, but membership is growing.
