Testimonials 

Thank you for this program. I was here last year but this year I brought my sister and niece to participate in the program. I didn’t know that I could go to school with financial aid until I followed a friend, who lives in the same apartment, who told me about financial aid and asked me to contact Michael Amazou or Cecilia Nugent. I was amazed how Michael welcomed me to his office and explained how I could get aid for my education. This is my second semester now at Middlesex Community College.

If it was not with that help from College Goal Sunday, I will not be in college now.

My other sisters have the opportunity to join the college process. I am very grateful to this program and for the awareness. I have informed my church members and friends of Ghana Immigrant Association.

Thank you College Goal Sunday. See you next year.

I wish to express my gratitude for this program. I’ve been a student of Middlesex Community College two semesters. This being my second, I did not really show much interest in financial aid because I have always thought it was a long process and too bothersome to start. This semester I decided to find out about it and came with a friend.

I met Mr. Michael Amazou. He was very welcoming and he helped me to understand a lot of things. He took me through a step process and now I have a lot of rest and less stress about my tuition.

I would like to thank the organizers and executives of this program. My friends who do not know about this program will definitely be here next year. Thank you College Goal Sunday. See you next year!
