"These courses helped me experience and explore many different classes and gain lots of knowledge not only of the course content but also of how I am as a student. When I did Dual Enrollment my senior year, I had no definite idea of what I wanted to do with my life. Having the opportunity to take college courses in high school helped me narrow down what I do and do not like and took me a step closer to figuring out what major I want to study"
