The Buzz About ESA
What students say
"...talking to people have been through it before -- very encouraging!"
"I really appreciated having people to look out for me and my peers. I was encouraged to succeed and not to give up!"
"ESA's main focus was to help us succeed as Engineers and the amount of help I received with Math was truly amazing! First semester was tough, but Barbara and going to my professors office hours helped me improve my grade and my study skills! Having Barbra and Dean Marosi and other members watching out for me helped me keep myself in check."
"...they were beneficial in helping me gain an understanding of the material and they often helped me retore motivation in continuing to put my best foot forward despite failures."
"They reaffirm that I can succeed in engineering. Maybe not at the moment but the final product is possible."
"Most everything was helpful in a different way. If it didn't help academically it served some other purpose in helping me succeed."
About a field trip to the offices of one Advisory Board member: "...although it was a single experience, was a life-changing experience because it was like opening the door to my future and taking a peek inside. I don't know how many students have experienced that privilege, but I was most appreciative about that."
