Why did you choose Skidmore's Pre-College Program?
From what I heard about how loving and caring the Pre-College Program is from friends who went through the program in the past, I couldn’t pass up on the opportunity.
What has been the best part of your Pre-College experience?
I loved the organization of the program. It allowed me to have an idea of how my days and weekends would go. I loved the people that surrounded me. They were very caring and supportive.
How will your Pre-College experience prepare you for your transition to college?
College was never in my vocabulary before I came to Skidmore’s Pre-College Program. I was going to live my life in the military and serve my country. But now as I look back on my experience here, now the word military isn’t as significant as it once was to me. Skidmore has allowed me to realize that I want to become a college man rather than a military man. I will become a college man.
Do you have any special advice for prospective students considering the program?
Just come and be yourself, because trust me, the staff members will have their arms open to welcome you in.
What is your favorite Pre-College memory?
My favorite memory from the program will definitely be watching everyone come together every Tuesday night for a meeting in the residence hall lounge. Although it may have been only for 10-15 minutes, sitting back and watching everyone closely sit together in the lounge as a community, as a team, as a whole, really warmed my heart.
