Queensborough ASAP, January 2010
Current Student, Lehman College, Computer Science major
What were your early impressions of ASAP, and how did they change over time?
At first, the block scheduling felt a bit like high school, but eventually I met more students outside my electrical engineering program and outside of ASAP. I got involved in leadership at the college and became Vice President of Evening Students.
What was the most rewarding thing about being an ASAP student?
I really appreciated the advisement and the exposure to helpful opportunities. Of course, the financial support was extremely helpful!
What, in your opinion, makes ASAP unique?
I think experiencing a small, supportive community within a much larger one was different from the experience many of my friends had at other schools.
Looking back, how do you think that ASAP impacted your life?
ASAP definitely enabled me to graduate on time and move on to a four year college.
What is one of the most memorable moments you had as an ASAP student?
One of my most memorable moments was performing open mic at an ASAP event with my good friend Nick. You can catch the performance here.
What are your career goals and/or future plans?
I hope to graduate soon and start a career in computer software design.
