“I really enjoyed my experience as an Emerging Star. … My mentor and I became really good friends, and she inspired me to become a mentor as well. … I still work with professors I met during Emerging Stars, and they are helping me find opportunities to expand my skill set.”

—Stephanie Harris, Class of 2014
