Being a first generation student, the McNair program helped open doors for me I didn’t even know were there. The McNair Scholar program socialized and prepared me for a career in higher education. Through mentorship, research, seminars, and workshops I learned early what it meant to be a ‘scholar’. Getting these early exposures gave me an advantage over many of my peers.
