Thoughts about CSTEP: In one word my experience with CSTEP was unforgettable. I will always cherish the experience as a great opportunity to shore up my academic skills. The fact of the matter is that without the assistance I received in terms of academics and personal fulfillment I might now be telling a different story. My message to future and present members of CSTEP-aim for balance in your college life, become involved in the greater community, and never ever give up on your dreams.
