Student Testimonials

"The onboard experience was really helpful with stepping out of my comfort zone and made me more confident about making friends this fall!"
"I really liked it because it was overall a fun time and great way to make new friends. I have a group of people I'm already planning to see when I get there in a few weeks. I learned a lot about some of the other people in the group in addition to learning more about myself."
