Spending time with friends and family
Spanish for Heritage Speakers (SPAN 305). This Spanish class was only for heritage speakers, which was enjoyable because we all knew Spanish but simultaneously we were still learning and growing with other students.
BOP allows minority students to start college the summer before the start of their freshman year which is a great way to get a head start towards your career. It is an outstanding program where you create many relationships with peers that are in the same career path as you. Overall, it feels more like a family that is always supporting you and guiding you in the right direction.
I was able to gain success academically by working with my fellow peers who are in several of the same classes as me to understand different concepts and better grasp the material. Professionally, I have grown by working with older BOP classmates by them giving me tips on resumes, interviews, and elevator pitches which led me to my internship after my freshman year. I have grown socially by becoming more comfortable speaking to recruiters, attending career fairs and workshops.
