What our students are saying...

"The most important thing that I learned was how to afford my education. I thought that I would have to rely mostly on grants, scholarships and financial aid. However, I was told that since I'm a student interested in research, I could reach to some faculty members at universities and appeal to them for an opportunity to work in their research teams or for them." Salvador Valle
