My Frontiers class was more fun and more rewarding than any high school class I've ever taken. It was a great opportunity to get my feet wet in college life.

The live classes for my Biotechnology course allowed me to interact with the professor in real time, which is something that I am grateful for. The project assignments were enjoyable and I was able to make friends with people across the globe!
