Tech Prep Participant Testimonials
"By giving us free time, the leaders at Tech Prep gave us a real insight into what kind of self control would be required to maintain a solid GPA at Tech. It's all about balance and Tech Prep opened my eyes to that."
"The overview of calculus allowed me to go into Calculus 1 more prepared for the course and more confident. This allowed me to study more on my other, more difficult courses."
"Getting to see the campus, learn my way around, and not feel stupid for not understanding the buses. When I came back for fall classes, I knew where the important buildings were, I knew how to study, and I felt more secure in starting college than most of the other students around me."
"Many people think that they are ready for college no questions asked. Some are right, most are not. While the things like time management and study habits that you learn at Tech Prep are not earth shattering realizations, they are extremely important concepts to hash out. Tech Prep allows a grace period for you to learn these lessons without you affecting your GPA at all."
"I would highly recommend Tech Prep to any incoming Freshman, regardless of their math background. If for no other reason than the relationships that you build during the program. Almost all of my friends at the end of my first semester are the result of Tech Prep directly or indirectly."
"Most of my friends are from Tech Prep. The first week of school, I didn't get stressed or lost. I already had friends and could navigate campus. It was really reassuring."
"I would recommend it because it is a good insight on the pace and the amount of homework you will get while at Tech."
