Graduates of the program shared their experiences in college-level classes at the celebration on Tues., Dec. 19. They all stressed the importance of asking questions of professors when classes got difficult and finding help with academic papers.
The College Transition Program is part of Lewiston Adult Education, is free and designed for people who live or work in Androscoggin County planning to enroll in college in the next 12 to 18 months. It provides a comprehensive review of reading, writing and math in a college-style setting.

The next College Transition Program starts on Jan. 9 at the B Street Community Center. Classes will meet from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
