“Being a part of the ARISE program has been beyond amazing for me. Through ARISE, I was given an opportunity to realize my potential and follow through with my dream of studying in the College of Engineering."
“ARISE encourages me to develop academically and personally. Being in ARISE has helped me step out of my comfort zone and I am grateful for the mentors around me that I can go to if I have any questions.”
“Originally, I was hesitant to add a year to my studies; but ARISE's 5-year structure has helped build a strong foundation for the classes I'll take in the future. I'm glad that I didn't deny this blessing because of that requirement."
“College was my next big step in life and ARISE helped lighten the pressure I was feeling. ARISE offers helpful study groups and the community of a lifetime, I wouldn’t trade this experience for the world.”
