Emerging Ethnic Engineers (E3) Student Stories

The program allowed me to adjust to college much easier than if I had not been a part of it. It helped me communicate better with others efficiently, taught me that collaboration with people of all backgrounds is super important, and having a secure support system will help you become the best student you can be. During the program, there were many times where I just wanted to give up, go home, and enjoy the rest of my summer. But now I realize if I had the opportunity to go through another experience such as this one, I would not hesitate to take it.” – Ashley Kirby

"Going through E3 has made many changes to my college experience and continues to impact me today. I found a group of friends, learned great study skills, and got a chance to get ahead in my classes. Highschool didn't adequately prepare me for college and E3 filled in the gap. I couldn't be more grateful to the program.”— Matthew Adkins
