Alumni Testimonials

Harmon - BCBS (MCP Alumni)

“MCP prepared me for college with multiple informative workshops and continual words of encouragement throughout college. The Midwest College Project also helped me post grad as well, putting me in a position to decide on one of four offers fresh out of school. I am beyond grateful for the networking opportunities that MCP has put in front of me!”

Batchman - Graduating Senior (MCP Alumni)

The Midwest College Project ingrained in me great knowledge and confidence that prepared me for not only college, but life as a whole. I made many valuable connections and am grateful to have had the ongoing support and mentoring like no other. The program motivated me to do lots of things but most of all it motivated me to be a better me.  

Staton - Entrepreneur (MCP Alumni)

“The MCP not only assisted in discovering the perfect college for me, but it allowed me to build a network filled with like minded individuals that still last to this day. Mrs. Crittle has been a helpful resource in my business and entrepreneurial ventures during school and post grad. I am thankful for the opportunities and bonds I have that were birthed during my time in the MCP”.

Edwards - Grad Student (MCP Alumni)

MCP fully prepared me to enter the collegiate and working world. Through professional workshops I was motivated to continue my education and pursue my dreams of becoming a business woman and psychologist.

Richardson - Medical Student (MCP Alumni)

"I really enjoyed the Midwest College Tours because it gave me a better understanding of the difference between attending a small, medium and large college. In this way, I was able to narrow down which college was best for me. For me personally, I found out that I prefer a larger sized college. Campus visits afforded me the opportunity to find out what their admissions process was like and what requirements they have."  Throughout my 4 years of college and even as I prepared for Denistry School MCP has been there to support, coach and guide me through the process.  My overall engagment has been a true blessing. 

Ross- Medical School Candidate (MCP Alumni)

"Well it was a good experience and it gave me an opportunity to see if the schools we visited were a good match for me and if they fit my 'interest before I made the commitment to select DePaul,"
