Home for the Summer
“The Home for the Summer Program has given me experiences beyond what I would have gotten at my usual summer job. I feel more prepared and less nervous for my clinical placement this year because of the learning experiences I was able to have through the program.”
There Is No Place Like Home
“Home for the Summer Program was a great way to spend my summer. I was able to have the opportunity to return home for the summer, work and gain valuable experience related to my studies”S. Webb
