OPTION PLAY builds confidence

I didn’t have anything like this when I first went to college. I actually didn’t think about things I should have thought about so I ended up transferring after my first year. I think if I would have had a game like this I wouldn’t have had the problems I did.
— Nick, Drexel
As a first generation student, through playing OPTION PLAY I came to understand I could get academic help even if I didn’t think I needed it.

— Kendall, First Generation Student, University of Michigan

OPTION PLAY IS A FUN GAME WITH AN IMPORTANT PURPOSE

If you start preparing yourself for the fact that all these crazy things can happen, then it will be less of a shock when you first encounter them. I think it’s a great idea to play the game.
— Lillian, Lafayette
OPTION PLAY is a great way of getting freshman to talk about how to navigate life while living on campus, and being a successful college student.
