UnidosNow scholar, Lisbeth Gorgonio, was among the honorees at the annual Take Stock in Children recognition event last month. Lisbeth has been accepted into New College of Florida, quite an accomplishment!
To be fully ready for what’s ahead, New College has helped the Future Leaders Academy to work on case studies and have a mock college interview. They also toured the campus, and met with students who shared what campus life is like and tips to succeed in college. All of them truly enjoyed the visit and shared this with us:
“I would consider attending New College because the campus made me feel secure and comfortable and it’s not a big as other colleges, so classes won’t be hard to understand.”
“I thought it was a fun and productive day. It gave me a feel of what being on a college campus is like.”
“It was pleasant. I learned a lot about college applications as well as colleges themselves. I also learned how dorms worked, as I previously had no idea about.”
“Great, I was able to get the feel of what I should do for the next two years to improve my transcript to show that I desire to go to this college from all the others.”
“My overall experience today very helpful in learning the important parts of the college admissions process.”
