(150-word max)fascinating opportunitiesI personally believe that a student cannot properly learn unless they are allowed to apply the concepts they are taught. I desire an institution that not only teaches students necessary skills and information, but also supports them in taking that knowledge to the next level and utilizing it before they even graduate. Through my recent visit, I learned more about the Coop program that allows students to jump into their career before they even graduate. Not only does it stand out to future employers, it also allows a student to discover if a specific field is truly for them as well as how they will utilize their knowledge after they graduate. I also was informed about the Center for Academic Success that provides many tutoring opportunities, workshops, and programs that are oriented toward helping students learn to succeed by themselves, but also providing help when it is needed.
