Testimonials

"My greatest takeaways from the program were building connections with my department and being able to interpret and write scientific articles. Advice I would offer to future students would be to talk to your professor about anything – don’t be shy! I would recommend this program to future students because is a great way to connect with faculty. It also helps you understand, expand, and gain more knowledge of your field of study."

"The program helped me become independent academically because my faculty member gave me so much freedom throughout the process. I would tell future participants to take it seriously and to work really hard. I would recommend this program to other students because it will advance them academically and push them out of their comfort zone from a classroom – which alleviates the pressure of failing."

"This program has helped me to feel more confident about myself; since this is an             extracurricular activity, it has taught me the time management skills necessary to succeed for the rest of my academic career at SJSU. It has also built my resume with a Research Project which I know will open more career opportunities for me. The advice I would give to future participants is to always try to be optimistic, perseverant, and willing to learn – It will all be worth it in the end. Everything you gain from this experience will only help you in the future so enjoy the process."
