  5. 5. "As an incoming freshman I was lucky to [have] the opportunity to work with professors over the summer. I do not regret this decision because it helped me move forward in experiencing college prior to the fall semester, and I recommend the summer courses for all incoming freshman. This summer I learned so much about myself: how to balance work, my strengths and weakness, and how to improve them. During the course I got to have a one-on-one connection with the professors because of their encouragement and challenges. My biggest change over the summer was finding my own voice, due to the professors’ openness of our opinions". ~Sydney Currie
  6. 6. Rianna Chase Rianna’s Academic Materials page is a great example of the different ways you can present your course work on ePortfolio.

She enhanced the page by adding wordles, videos, and pictures related to her studies and field of interest.
  7. 7. • “Over the summer I was worried about academically transitioning to college, but luckily I was aware of the Pace Prep Summer Course. After completing the course, I can definitely say that it has been a huge benefit. I was able to brush up on my basic academic skills and even learn about different career fields and their majors. Also, working with ePortfolio and Blackboard gave me the advantage of learning how to use those sites. Overall, I am so grateful and thankful to have had the opportunity of working with the Pace Prep Course this past summer and having it help me transition into Pace University smoothly.” ~Rianna Chase
