Hear from a student

When asked "What part of the FastTrack program did you enjoy most?" One student said:

"I feel very confident about starting college in the fall, and that I am going to succeed in a college setting. This is a really good summer college prep lab. Plus I'm now connected with the right people and now know someone to go to when I have problems or need help with anything. Most incoming freshmen would benefit from taking this course, I highly recommended it."
