Testimonials from Attendees

“As a student, I found that the “College lie” section was very informative. Hearing from upper classmen and their advice is very useful. It has something I could relate to and it has enjoyable, hearing from younger representative.”

“As a parent who hasn’t attended college, I found this bootcamp to be very informative. Thank you!”

“I enjoyed the event very much. The guest speakers were very professional and knowledgeable. They inspired me to continue moving forward to be successful in college and to value a college education. The food and snacks throughout the day were really good too.”
