“When I was in high school, I prepared for college by meeting with my college guidance counselor when I was a sophomore. He was the one who recommended me to take AP courses as well as College Now courses to help me save money and get a sense of what it’s like to be in college.”

“When I started at Lehman College as a transfer student from Puerto Rico, I found myself trying to fit in with different departments. I got involved with different organizations like the dance concert and met friends and networked that way. College is not only about studying, but it’s also about having fun.”

“There are many different programs that can help you pay for college. One of them that I’m in is called ASAP. They pay for tuition, MetroCard and books. Never think that you can’t pay for college because there’s always going to be some way to pay and get that education you want.”
