I am so grateful for this experience. The Neubauer Family Adelante Summer Scholars program truly changed my life for the better. I feel so prepared to go out into my community and the world and make a real difference.
This was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I found value in everything I did and learned: becoming accustomed to the college lifestyle, doing college level work, developing life-long (hopefully) friendships, learning to navigate public transportation, exploring Chicago, learning more about the college application process. This was an experience that I will treasure forever.
The sense of community that college brings. The other students in the Neubauer Family Adelante Summer Scholars program honestly became like a family to me - there was always someone to spend time with in the lounge, always someone ready to get a shake at Medici's with you, always a group ready to go to salsa. I thought college was more isolating than high school, but it really is not. Here at UChicago I felt closer to my fellow Neubauers then most of my peers back at home. I love the sense of community on campus.
The most important thing that I am coming away with is that I am beyond excited to go to college and major in the sciences. I was passionate before, but UChicago has only impassioned me more. I can't wait to delve into new ideas and concepts and get a new perspective on the world. Liberal arts college is definitely for me. I have a lot of interests and I want to satisfy all of them; however, I am not sure that my curiosity will ever be satiated.
The most important thing I can take away from this program is the adventurous spirit I cultivated. Whether it was making a bold comment in class discussion or going on a downtown Chicago adventure or dancing full out in a salsa class, I definitely got out of my comfort zone at UChicago.
