“To actually do real research —
I think that’s the best thing about SOARS.”
“It's been back and forth… We come with our different ideas and we work together.”
“We soon became our own group, our own family of friends - and that makes a big difference.”
“You’re not going to be defined by your race or gender, you’re just going to be a person.”
“It just blows you away how inspired the Protégés get when given the opportunity to do research.”
“Be ready for a culture shock! Be ready for it, but be ready to appreciate it.”
