    Testimonials

    To me being in the CICE program at St. Lawrence college means that I’m a part of a group and alumni of students that have graduated from the past and the present. As students at St. Lawrence we are seen as normal students not students that are of need of extra help. We are treated just like everyone else at the college.

    The part that I found most valuable about being in the CICE program was the fact that if you needed help with your school work your learning specialist were there with you. They also helped us out by attending our classes with us, and helping us one on one in tutoring time.

    Being in the CICE program allowed me to go to college and enter into the program I was interested in go into. With the help of the CICE program the course loads were manageable.

    The CICE program helped me by being there to support us students when we needed it most. I found it also helped when we had tests we could book extra tutoring time with our learning specialists, this helped out a lot when we knew what to expect on tests.
