My time at Millbrook was incredibly special and really shaped my expectations for college. I loved Millbrook's tight-knit community, and when I got that special sense of community at Colgate, I knew it was the college I wanted to attend. Here, I will further my development as a student and adult. At Millbrook I learned you get out what you put into your experience, which is why I want to be heavily involved in many things at Colgate. I feel no anxiety or uncertainty about college life. Millbrook's balance of independence and built-in structure for students has taught me skills and given me experiences that allow me to have an excellent baseline for college. Furthermore, the way Millbrook teachers pushed me to find deeper meaning in my work will definitely help me be successful in college.
