C of I has given me the opportunity to make new friends, to take leadership roles and has definitely pushed me outside my comfort zone.

The reason I appreciate C of I is that the school and its community share the same goal as my parents, which is to help me achieve success without being hindered by lack of opportunity or finances.

I never know what to expect for every term I enter, but I know that I will leave it with a new outlook, whether it is through a club, a class, a project, or an unexpected connection of the three.
