Here is Lizzie on her ARC experience – “I’m blown away by the learning associated with the ARC experience. I learned more about Bloomington-Normal in two weeks than two years living here. It has been a life changing experience that has truly developed and driven my interests that I’ll credit this program to. You’re never to old to learn, and you’re never too young to lead!”
