"T2U is one of the greatest ideas ever. Using it in the summer allowed me to get familiar with everything that would be happening come first semester. By the time school started, I already felt very comfortable with the whole concept of university thanks to T2U. I think it's something that should be accessible throughout a student's entire education, not just in their first year!" - Former T2U student
