What People Say
I stumbled across General Intelligences on instagram and read the articles on your website. They are so well-done that I had a clear idea on complex and simple topics relating to my transfer journey and adapting to college…There weren’t as many resources at my CC that I think could have prepared me as much as these resources on the website. I can’t thank this organization enough!Ahmed M.
Thank you so much General Intelligences! I learned how to make my scholarship application stand out and also received the encouragement and structure on how to start my own project. This is a great atmosphere to learn and grow online with fellow students who I can call my friends. I’m very excited to matriculate to my dream school in the fall and have a better idea of how to go about finding resources and support on campus as a first-generation student thanks to advice from the team.Olivia C.
