I really appreciated the small class structure at the Ithaca College Summer Program because my professor put all of his energy into the classroom. I thought the structure of being in college was better than a high school schedule because I got to manage more of my time around my homework. This program has helped me improve my writing skills for homework assignments, which is beneficial to me because I can carry writing skills with me when I go to college.
Taking the “Issues in Management” course made me realized that I truly want to major in advertising because I love doing collaborative work and making up strategies to promote products. My favorite part of the course was learning about how Apple got to be the highest-selling brand company in the world, even though they struggled in the beginning. I got to see how the company overcame their struggles with their strategic thinking.
Additionally, being a part of this program has made me more independent. I experienced a wonderful time at Ithaca College and I will never forget the wonderful memories that I have with my friends and roommate, with whom I still keep in touch! Participating in this program has showed me that I am truly a people person because I love socializing and having company around me! All the memories that I had at Ithaca—going to Darien Lake, hiking with my friends, and making s’mores for the first time—are something that I definitely brought home with me. This summer has been one that I will never forget, and I wish I could have stayed longer. It is actually one of THE BEST summers I had so far! I am so thankful to my donors for helping me be a part of the 2014 Ithaca summer program! I truly recommend this to anyone!
