Class of 2012 Student Testimonials
“It was awesome to meet the CEO whose position I hope to take over in my future. His presentation also opened my eyes to a new potential degree I would like to attain – a healthcare management degree!” “This camp is such a privilege for me as I am attaining such vital information for the decisions I will be making over the next few years! I really enjoyed that everybody that was a part of creating this experience for us worked to make it informative but also very fun!”
“Today has been another successful day in teaching me something new. I’ve learned that when I do something I should really want to do it because it makes me happy.”
“Today’s presenters have changed my perspective on my future, and I’m glad I’ll be able to use this knowledge to make better decisions. Also, today’s topics brought up ideas that I have never really considered so it’s neat to be inspired by these new thoughts.”
“I am beyond grateful for this experience. I am leaving today with a new mindset of the following years to come. Brad Brown from Education Quest gave me hope and helped me understand how to ready myself for college. He informed us on all of the appropriate steps to take to have a better chance at achieving our goals for less money and stress. The college admissions panel was amazing and an experience any high school senior should experience. This inspired me to go for my dreams because I know there are people out there to guide me in the right direction. Thank you again for this amazing opportunity!”
"The experience all together was more than I could ask for. He was a great teacher and made me confident in myself for a situation where I need to use CPR on a person. This just puts me another step closer to my dreams of helping people. I am certified!!"
"I've taken so much from this camp and appreciate the opportunity. There's just so much I can do, so what I will take away from this whole week is to consider all of my options and enjoy what I do. I am discovering so many things and am so fortunate and grateful - this experience has been so appreciated."
"I had a really great time this week and I hope I see you in the future!!“
"The best part of today was the Clinical Laboratory Science tour. I was inspired and interested. Not only did we get animated speakers, we also got to get close-up to what happens with your blood in a hospital.”
"I have really enjoyed the day today and am sad it is the last day of camp. I really hope that I can come back her again because it was so fun. The people I've met this week were very interesting. I am glad that I got to meet them and learn about them."
"Thank you for having me in this program - it helped me a lot!"
