  • "...this class was a great experience and I believe it should be mandatory for every student...Now I am clearer on who I am as a person and how to use my strengths to my advantage. I also have a better picture of my values, skills, and interests which has motivated me to really find a career that I will love."
  • "....I came into this class undeclared and not knowing what I wanted to do, and I feel like now I'm leaving a declared student and I feel 100% satisfied with my choice."
