"I really enjoyed the program, and once I met everyone in the cohort, it made attending other Club events easier. I always saw familiar faces when I otherwise would have been overwhelmed by attending my first event and not knowing anyone. The kick-off brunch was so much fun. We played a dozen ice breaker games to ensure we got to know everyone and learned about our common interests. You could hear our laughter from down the hall. The program is excellent and Melinda, the program manager, is awesome. I loved the Facebook group chat because it gave us a closer sense of community and allowed us to keep in touch throughout the four months so we could organize last minute meetups. I can't stop raving to my friends and family how awesome this entire club is!" - Katriina Floderus, Cohort Two
