What Full Circle Project means to me:  "Full Circle Project is like an older sibling to me. Because I’m the oldest in my family and the first to attend college, I don’t have any older sibling or relative to rely on when I have questions about college, or any personal issues I face. When I have something to ask, I would go to FCP for help. FCP also have resources provided for students, such as scholarship opportunities, mentors, and free test materials for low-income students. Without FCP, I would be lost in college, and I wouldn’t know who to go to for advice."

What Full Circle Project means to me: "Full Circle Project (FCP) is an important aspect of my life because it ultimately promoted my success as a first and second year student by continuing to provide numerous resources and assistance. Full Circle Project’s welcoming environment allowed me to find a place where I am accepted. Although the learning communities were beneficial to my transition into college, the constant peer-to-peer connection and support that FCP offers, has encouraged me to grow mentally and spiritually as an individual."

What Full Circle Project means to me: "As cliché as this sounds, Full Circle Project means family to me.
