What Do Past Students Have to Say?

"Before I went I was a little disappointed that it was going to be almost 4 weeks long. After I went I was disappointed it was only 4 weeks long! I would do it over if I had the chance. The experiences and the fun I had could never be explained...and the friends I made are irreplaceable. Thanks!"

Melinda Kozlowski, Mass Communications

“Summer Academy prepared me for the challenges that I would be facing as an incoming freshman. I had plenty of friends and I was definitely prepared for the academics because of the lectures that were given in the Academy. I grew as an individual because of learning and going through all of the Academy experiences."

Diana Greene, Music Industry
Queens, NY

“Summer Academy to me was considered a transition from high school to college life. It gave me the opportunity to experience college life before actually starting college. The experience was rewarding both academically and socially. We had the chance to brush up on our writing and math skills and at the same time we had a great time.”

Nakemma Durrant, Biology
