STA Student Testimonials
I spent a month taking a Fiber Arts studio course as part of the Colorado College Pre-College Program. I loved living in a dorm and becoming close friends with my roommate. I think the most valuable aspect of this experience was meeting young people from all over the world and realizing just how much college will expand my horizons. Grace Girardeau, Class of 2016
The NSLI Youth Scholarship to Study Language Abroad provided an amazing way to expand my understanding of the world through language studies. On my scholarship trip to India, I stayed with a host family, studied Hindi daily and participated in cultural classes like art, music and dance. This experience changed how I see the rest of the world, how I see myself in relation to the rest of the world, and it sparked an interest in cultural understanding and knowledge, not only of India, but of all cultures and different people. Meredith Raymer, Class of 2016
