ACAP Reflections: "By being a part of ACAP, I was given the chance to see what college life would be like. Living on a college campus helped give me a glimpse of what living in a dorm would be like. It also gave me the opportunity to start to prepare myself to be away from home and learning to branch out on my own. ACAP really tries to enforce how important it is to network with others. Talking to people I barely know isn't always ease for me so when I had to learn to get out of my comfort zone, it was difficult but it was a great experience. I was glad to be forced out of my comfort zone and that helped me meet so many new people. Networking is something I now know is extremely important. That is why I have joined a business organization here at UT that helps keep me involved and gives me the opportunity to keep networking. Throughout my first year in college, I have had at least one major assignment where I had to come up with my own company. Being a part of ACAP gave me a foundation of how to start off with this assignment. Many of the assignments that are given to us to work on throughout the week of ACAP are assignments that could very easily be an assignment given to you in a business class, which is why I am so grateful of all the things I learned while at ACAP.
Being a part of ACAP is something that will benefit you in so many ways that you don't even know until you experience it yourself".
