Yes, it is the first time I am going to attempt college.

People are really helpful here, it is a place where people can success and there are even facilities for kids. I liked the fact that there are a lot of informations and resources on the campus, you can see people are happy here.

Do you feel ready to study?

What do you fear the most?
I fear to fail!

Do you think that if you have a problem or a specific need you can find the right service or person to talk?
Yes, there will always be someone to help and I feel comfortable to ask.
