"I think it was a wonderful opportunity to learn crucial lessons that you cannot learn in a classroom or in every day life. I encourage every single student to participate in this course." --William Connell
"Thank you so much for a fabulous weekend at Q-camp! It was a tremendous success, and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience... every speaker was personable, engaging, interesting, and provided very useful advice and information. I think that all aspects of the weekend ran very smoothly.
I was nervous that Q-camp was going to be very regimented and stressful. I was pleasantly surprised that the experience was professional yet relaxed. I met some really wonderful people including classmates, professionals and faculty members. I think that Q-camp has strengthened my ties with other Business School students who I may not have otherwise met. This was not only a networking event in terms of future employers; it was a networking event among students. I bonded with other Robins School of Business students." --Kelly Padden
