What They Have to Say

"I am thrilled to let you know that I am finalist for the QuestBridge National College Match! If it hadn't been for COSLI, I might not have had the courage to apply for QuestBridge in the first place. Additionally, I have been accepted to CU Denver!! COSLI truly solidified my desire to become part of the Lynx community. COSLI also inspired me to become part of the Mental Health Youth Action Board at Children's Hospital Colorado!! I am really excited to see what the future has in store for me and to continue helping out my community. COSLI truly had a positive impact in my life."

"The Institute is an amazing program that I am incredibly grateful to be a part of. I've been given an extraordinary opportunity to work with others who share the same tremendous passion towards education, and want to strive to achieve their goals. There's such an amazing atmosphere full of love and encouragement created by COSLI. It's truly an honor to be given this one in a life time opportunity to be apart of this life changing program."

"Trying to remember facts from a textbook is fine, but if you would rather learn by memorable experience, become a part of COSLI. Here you'll not only learn about subjects that interest you, but also about people, friendship, and what college is all about."
