Bernadette Duran

Summer Intensive 2018

"I was able to get a head start on my collegiate success through Summer Intensive. Without the Summer Intensive Program, I would have entered my first semester feeling lost and completely unaware of Bergen's outstanding resources. When I told my classmates about this program, they wished they took it."
