This summer was one of the best I have had. Experiencing the University of Maryland campus has made it one of my top choices for undergraduate studies. The interactions with my peers were a lot of fun. The mentors were fun to be around. The dorm was very nice and comfortable. The class was enjoyable and I learned a lot. The library was accessible. I had a great time and am thankful for going to the Young Scholars Program, for the friends that I made, and for the great experience. YSP student
