Everything about this program was amazing. From my classes, I learned how to cook and take amazing photos. I also learned so much about the college application process and made so many friends along the way. I would definitely recommend this program to everyone.
This program taught me a lot, and I loved it. I learned so much about photography, took some amazing pictures; and in Psychology, learned a lot about how the brain works and how people think and interact. It really helped me follow my passions and learn about myself.
I had so much fun meeting new people, in my courses and loved getting to stay on campus! I learned a lot, had fun while doing so, and met so many kids that left such an impact on my life. It's an amazing experience that I highly recommend!
