Compass has significantly impacted my life. I just hope that our efforts as volunteers have given as much to the kids as they have given to us. I have been volunteering since my sophomore year and going to the program is always the highlight of my week. This is because of all of the amazing people there that are united for the same great cause. I believe that this program is excellent for the Valparaiso University students to not only advance in their studies, but to also excite the kids about finding a profession and stress the importance of diligent study habits in order to be well-prepared for the future. The most beautiful thing is that, throughout the time that I have been there, I have truly seen this become a reality. -Alissa Fiorntino, Valparaiso University Graduate
