Sofia Perez '22 on the Community Access Scholarship

As a Community Access Scholar, coming to Concordia was a huge opportunity. Also being able to live in the dorms is an incredible opportunity because it gives me the college experience I didn't think I would have, and it's all thanks to this scholarship.
