Ms. McNeil and Mr. Perez...I am truly inspired to work harder and smarter...to help build more support systems for my TRIO Upward Bound students.

I’m reminded every class I teach how wise students are. It’s a pleasure to share the learning experience with them and you all.
Benjamin Rifkin

You can’t see me, but I’m nodding my head in affirmation about all the things that all our student panelists are saying. Your truth speaks to me.

This is why it is important to get to know your professors and administrative staff (deans, assoc. deans, etc) when they know your stories and needs they are usually more than willing to help with great advice, mentorship and financial assistance. I am in development and our faculty and staff are some of our largest donors because they know the stories of students in need!

Great intellectual insights from the panelists; most appreciated. Yes, perseverance and strength and facing up to challenges. Suddenly, people from around the world now realizing we all in the same boat, we all in this together; the pandemic does not discriminate between rich and poor, black and white, east or west. crises and challenges bring the best out of us. Thank you for your thoughts and experiences.
