" The program allowed me to be a college student for two weeks. I worked out at the Reily Rec Center, ate at the dining hall every day, and even put myself out there to make friends with, not only my roommate, but also with my classmates. This program showed me how easy it can be to adapt to college life when you're surrounded by an environment that is the right fit for you. "
