My dad worked with southwestern for 5 years to put himself through college and told me how beneficial it was to him - both at that age and because it taught him how to run a business which he now does. After my sophomore year at Elon Univ I signed up. It was absolutely the toughest thing I had ever done, but at the same time, the most rewarding. I have now been in the program for 5 years myself. I've made the best friends, travelled to more places than I ever anticipated, and learned invaluable life lessons. I recommend the program to any tough minded student who values hard work and discipline.
Challenge for me was record keeping
The leadership is incredibly generous, patient, and supportive.
