Is FastStart for You?

Is the FastStart program for you? Read some statements from some of our past participants to help you decide.

I loved that I met new people and that I was able to bond with them. I also liked how there were ample opportunities for us to interact with all the staff and RA's and get information about the program.

Every student entering college for the first time should participate in a program like FastStart. It will help you understand college life, and you will not feel lost when school starts in the fall.

The hospital visit was very insightful.  It was interesting to shadow a doctor. I had the chance to travel with my doctor as she had her appointments with her patients. It was cool to see what a doctor does behind the scenes and what actually goes on in a hospital setting.

I never had confidence in myself or really believed that I can achieve anything but this program has taught me differently
