Past Participant Testimonies

"It was an experience that I am glad to have had because I was able to get to know other students in my major even before we've had classes together. I feel as though the LLC is so important because of the community that we already have in the department. I believe that the LLC improves our drive to attend classes and stick with the program because we are able to understand that we are not in this alone and we can all help each other out." - Alyssa
