It has been over a week since students left the summer programs and the campus definitely feels different without them. Last week I reached out to a couple of students for some testimonials about the time they had.

I'm about to share what Juan David Figueroa (Bogota, Colombia), Erica Dirk (Tewksbury, MA), Ted Johnston (Amherst, MA) and Sarah Gold (Warwick, RI) had to say about their Summer College experience.

Hello everyone! It's been a while since I last wrote!
