Thoughts about CSTEP: I joined the CSTEP program in fall 2007, I was able to make friends, and had the opportunity to attend, CSTEP Student Conference at the Sagamore. All of the staff at CSTEP is so nice and friendly, and they are always the first people I turn to when I have any questions. I am so happy to have been a part of the program. I can say this is a real family.
