Testimonials from previous BRP participants
- Everything complemented each other beautifully, and I believe I was able to earn 3 A’s, not just B’s. Not just the grade though, I am now able to see the bigger picture (academically, institutionally, socially, psychologically, culturally.)
- [BRP] changed the way I view education in a college setting. I am now focused more on learning rather than getting the grade.
- The BRP program was very straight forward and was encouraging as well as it was engaged not only in our self being but also on how we were doing in our classes as well.
- It gave me the techniques I needed to make it happen. Then it was up to me to use them. I feel like BRP did a wonderful job at doing preparing me.
- It help me be more aware of the reason or causes of dismissal. It help me accept that these issues are common and there are ways to solve them…. It was not just about the school issues it was I thought a lifestyle change.
Through the BRP program I was able to acknowledge my problem and find the confidence to become a better student as well as being able to ask for help when i mostly needed it.
- I know that it will help me persist and have that confidence knowing that I have the tools to succeed and the ability to sustain it.
- [My Peer Counselor] exemplified true care and concern for my academic endeavors and ensured I was exposed to all resources that would assist me with my success in the program.
- The Fiat Lux seminar introduced me to new ways of thinking about my identity as a student and the role of the university on my path to academic success. Peer counseling then reinforces these ideas by refining which theories are applicable to me. The workshops act as a group process where my fellow BRP participants and I support each other. Finally, my academic counselor and I work out a plan for graduation that helps to compartmentalize the whole process into step-by-step academic goals.
- I feel that everything that was done to ensure each students triumph during winter quarter were adequate enough in the preparation of a successful return.
- The BRP has empowered me as a student who knows how to take full advantage of the resources available to all students at UCLA. Moreover, the program has given me tremendous confidence about my academic future and — even more than that — it has instilled in me the desire to help other students seeking readmission or retention at UCLA.
