Nice Work!

Engaging and informative podcast. The student perspective is unique and vital. Episodes are well produced and yet spontaneous in their own way, too. This kind of podcast is not easy to create. Thanks for all the hard work and collaboration.

Every high school student should hear this!

Every high school student who is preparing to go to college, and every parent of a high school student should have a listen to this informative podcast. I am so impressed with the work of the students from this community college, and their investigative curiosity. Really interesting to learn about the behind the scenes intricacies of how college admissions works.

Do you want to go to a College where the number one value is faculty publication and research? Or do you wanna go to a College were the number one value is the students and their success?

Such an important topic!

I live in Silicon Valley where there is an obsession with getting into impressive colleges and universities, and even “high ranked” K-12 schools. I’m loving this podcast dedicated to challenging the idea that only a handful of colleges are good.
