“It’s a good experience, it’s a good way to throw yourself into what college life could be like and how it all works.”  

“This program helped educate me further on different types and different levels of engineering as well as how I can pursue different jobs/education in this area.” 

“It helped me get a better understanding of the applications of engineering as well as the variety.” 

Being able to see a bunch of people around my age who are interested in similar subjects as me was really a beneficial experience.”
