    As a Rochester City Scholar, I was provided a support network through the Multicultural Center for Academic Success (MCAS) from my first day on campus. The office provided me with an opportunity through the Summer Bridge Program to learn how to study, manage my time, connect with professors, and make lasting friendships. MCAS has been my biggest supporter while I’ve been here, and has made college feel like a much easier task than it really is.
