Student Testimonials

I would say the best part about the program is the long-lasting bond. Throughout my time in the Pre-college program, the people that I was with were basically my family. We did literally everything together. Throughout hard times and the
sleepless nights trying to get through the classes, we had to team up and overcome the hard struggle. With the help of the program, we even to this day hang out and stay together. We were able to have an advantage over all the other freshmen that came in by already having a bond and also by already having classes done, having credit, and even learn the campus. Also having done the program I was able to form connections with different high-level administration. I was also able to form a connection with the person who I now call boss for my work-study job. Without the program, I wouldn’t be able to have accomplished all I have now. I am forever in debt to the program for giving me a family here at Fisk.

Though my time in Pre College was limited, its effect on my life has been tremendous. Pre College prepared me for my Freshman year, and I gained contacts that help me get great opportunities. Taking classes during the summer allowed for a head start before any of my peers. When the Fall semester began I was involved in RAGE (Fisk’s dance team), SGA, CSA, Tanner Art Society, the Miss
Black and Gold Pageant, and even a homecoming fashion show. My class did so well throughout the year, and Mr. Isaac Thompson recognized us for our achievements! I was placed in the role of a mentor for Pre College 2019. I had a blast connecting and helping students adjust to college life. I always say without Pre College I would not have had as much success in my Freshman year.
