See the Soar in 4 effect
Watch how the Soar in 4 program helped Morgan to succeed during her time at FGCU and beyond.
"Aside from the gratification I earned of being the first in my family to graduate on-time with my Bachelor’s degree, I was able to find an even greater reward in the journey I endured with the Soar in 4 challenge. I wanted to better myself and prove that despite my disabilities, I could make it in the full-time working world. If it weren’t for the wonderful people I met through the Soar in 4 requirements, I wouldn’t have become the strong, independent woman I am today. Their colorful programs showed me that I wasn’t alone in wanting to become the best version of myself. Thank you to everyone who helped me grow at FGCU; I miss you.””
"FGCU's Soar in 4 program motivated me to get my degree in four years or less. It kept me on my toes academically, knowing I didn't have much room for error. Ultimately, the first-year tuition reimbursement will provide me a great head start in my adult life!" ”
