Overall, I really enjoyed the program! I’m very thankful to have been a part of it, and I’d definitely recommend it to serious students. Thank you so much for the valuable opportunity!

I really enjoyed our small group conversations and working with the other students. We were able to talk to one on another about the topics learned in class, as well as get to know one another after finishing our prompts.
