Q1: What has been the most rewarding aspect of your participation in the Inclusion Scholars Programs?

The most rewarding aspect of participating in the Inclusion Program has been the connections I’ve made within the program. I have made great friends who share the same interests as me, as well as mentors who provide support and guide me in the right direction. Everyone related to the program is super welcoming and only make me want to participate more.

Q2: What are some of the benefits you have experienced from participating in the ISP workshops and social activities? Which event(s) have you enjoyed the most and why?

Some of the benefits of participating in the workshops and social activities are the memories and good fun I had during the activities. Some of the best times I’ve had in college were at these events. Not only that but many times they are something I’ve never done, and it allows me to get out of my comfort zone a little. My favorite event was the escape room. It was very fun and challenged our group.
