Thoughts about CSTEP: CSTEP is not just any program; it is the way of helping students achieve success! For me, the most remarkable aspect was the guidance and support I received from the Director, Ms. Rihab Guneid. She knew me and every other member by name, then I realized... I was not only a file on her desk! Additionally, the regular weekly meetings covered a broad range of interesting topics which only contributed to the overall knowledge-gaining experience.
