"The FLC course I took was benficial to helping me learn skills that will help me later in my college education and in my future career. The FLC course was also a lot of fun and was a good challenge."
"I think I became more of a people person in my FLC because the people I met and the friends that I made made it easier to get along. It made me realize that there are more fun opportunities when I open myself up to the people around me."
"The small class size provides an engaging and close knit feel among the teachers and the students that allows for an interactive experience that facilitates the learning process."
"The FLC’s are a good way to get to know some people on campus and an even better way to tackle 2 courses at once. Since the courses are linked, they usually work together. It is very beneficial."
"I learned how to communicate better with students without offending them, and I followed through with more civil ideas. Cooperation is a skill that is very important in college as well and I learned how to keep shared goals for my own benefit."
"The FLC’s will let freshman students understand the difference between high school and college. It will allow them to know what to do or where to go when they are struggling."
