Academic Areas: Biomedical Engineering, Forensic Science, Chemistry. Attended program as a Rising Senior I loved the program. I felt it allowed me the opportunity to be immersed in a college campus with college students. I was allowed to take science classes, which I love, with students who have the same passion as me. I got to talk to college professors about college and express some concerns. Pre-college summer allowed me a chance to experience a little about what college had to offer. The RAs were so caring and very helpful when it came to basic college questions. I wouldn't have wanted to spend my last summer before college anywhere else.- Sophia Costa - September 16, 2016
