Student Comments about ECM “The ECM is my future. Without it I wouldn’t have been able to get the education I desired and I wouldn’t live the life I want to live” (David, New Haven) “I feel that it is one of the best choices I have made, because ever since I took my first college course over the summer, it has helped me improve my work and study habits, which has also helped me improve for high school”. (Dillon, Chippewa Valley) “I hope to be able to get my veterinary technician’s certificate so I will be able to have a steady career sooner in my life”. (Jessica, East Detroit)
