"Although the journey was challenging at times, it was undeniably the most valuable and rewarding experience I've ever had. The knowledge I gained, the people I met, and the lessons I learned will always be savored. I cannot think of a better way to spend three weeks of my summer break."

What makes a successful student?

A key to academic success is getting an idea of what's expected of you. Learning to manage your time is important and establishing a routine is a great place to start. Be sure to attend class daily and complete all assignments on time. Break your academic work down into manageable steps and stick with it. Eat well, get plenty of sleep, and have fun too!
