"Doing NevadaFIT was the best thing I could've done to prepare me for freshman year. Not only did I get a sneak peek at what a rigorous college class is like, but I also made friends that I still talk to today. It was a great way to familiarize myself with the campus and different teachers, it's an opportunity everyone should take advantage of."
