Student Profile & Interview Archive


"ASAP has affected me in more ways than I thought it would. They have kept me motivated and on track. I used to feel like my education meant nothing to anyone but me. Now, that is not the case; no matter what I need, there is someone-a tutor, academic advisor, career services-to help me out. The ASAP staff is like a second family to me. I'm more than ‘one of their students.' They care for me as a person."

"ASAP gave me the opportunity to pursue my education full-time. I was scared, because I also work full time. I thought when I started that it was not going to be easy and that I might drop out and not make it, but ASAP gave me a chance to prove myself. ASAP staff and advisors are there for me when I feel stressed, and knowing that people are there to guide and help me makes me glad. I am glad to have taken this chance. Thanks to ASAP, my dreams are coming to pass."
