"Adjusting to Rutgers has been one of the most difficult challenges I have ever faced. But the SAS EOF Family, particularly the summer institute has taught me numerous lessons such as time management, networking, and succeeding in college as a first-generation student. The tremendous amount of support especially from my counselor, Ms. Diamond-Rodriguez, has assisted me in starting my college journey at Rutgers. I truly cannot express how blessed I feel to be a part of such an inspiring community that SAS EOF is."
