Daniel Stuart Hoffman: “They got the message but I’m not sure their changes are appropriate. Yes it’s a ton of info in a short period of time, but it’s all important info. I think a more appropriate action would have been to extend each session rather than cut down on the info.”

Michelle Richards: “I did the Alive! Program the summer of 2000. It was definitely worth it- it gave me the chance to experience college life. Plus, my Coug dad came with me, and it was so special for us to share the experience.”
