"I had the opportunity to meet many wonderful students, caring staff members, and both dynamic and successful speakers that imparted indispensable advice and inspiration. On top of that, I was awarded two scholarships that will contribute tremendously towards my college career. Thank you for the chance to participate in this incredible program."

“This has been a wonderful experience, especially as a new incoming transfer student at William Paterson University. Here, I came across wonderful people who I am looking forward to look up during this coming Fall semester. I have never been exposed to such a motivational and goal driven environment.”

Lizbeth Alberto, Junior, COIN 2017

"It's a true experience. Initially it will be all about the scholarship. However the lessons and skills you will learn will become the new reason for staying. Toward the end I became more intrigued with learning more and caring less about my chances of winning the scholarship. The connections I made was the true prize.
