Read about LAJF’s newest initiative The Camp Rising Sun College Student Network (CRS CSN). The CRS CSN brings together alumni who are currently applying for, enrolled in, interested in, or knowledgeable about the U.S. College system. It is a place for sharing experiences in the admissions process, financial aid, study habits, choice of studies, career opportunities and everything else college related.
