The program helped integrate me to college life, and I got to learn the campus quickly which was a big relief. I had a lot of fun and made friends that I will definitely keep in touch with. I'd recommend this program for all incoming freshmen. FF student

I am pleased that our son sampled UMD prior to the fall. His experience prepared him for the intensity required at the college level and also gave him the opportunity to become familiar with the campus, sport facilities, etc. The social aspects were excellent. Our son met other incoming freshmen and started to make friends. FF parent
