So the takeaways that I had from this weekend were everyone is so welcoming and
0:25
friendly. They're very interested in having the students be successful, so it was
0:30
fantastic, great weekend.
0:37
I think the most enjoyable part of the experience was getting to know the campus
0:41
better and meeting my O.L.
0:43
and just getting comfortable with everyone here like knowing what I have provided
0:46
for me for when I start in the fall.
0:48
It's a great campus. The academics are great.
0:51
Just can't wait to get started.
0:56
I liked actually having the students doing their thing
0:58
and the parents going the other way so that they had their own opportunity to kind
1:02
of have their first taste overnight of what it's going to be like
1:05
and meeting some new friends without their parents hovering so let them get that
1:09
little bit of independence early and learn the campus on their own and find their fit.
1:17
I feel like Endicott is
1:18
a great community. The sense of community is really vibrant here. I'm really happy that I feel
1:23
like my daughter will be included in
1:26
a lot of things that she might be interested in and I feel like it's very safe.
1:35
One of the most enjoyable things
1:37
was meeting new people and finding new connections with people.
1:42
I finally feel prepared to start college in the fall and become a Gull. I'm super excited
1:46
and they definitely helped. I love this place. We've been to at least 10 different
1:52
colleges and visited, you know, looking for a spot for
1:55
our son to go to and we kept coming back to here and everything that has
2:00
happened so far even up to now has proved that this is the right decision for us.
2:04
I mean I think honestly this was always
2:06
his number one choice and we feel really secure that he made a good decision.
2:11
Great decision. We wish we could come here.
