More About STEP

Even though I first came in Undeclared, I always knew that I wanted to do something that involved helping others. I took the test [MBTI & Strong Interest Inventory] that the program required, and working within law was one of the choices. STEP helped me find the internship, and I loved it! –Evelyn R.

Joining STEP was probably the best decision. I slacked my freshman year and earned a 2.4 GPA. I joined the STEP program, and so many great things came out of that. I made a 3.6 GPA last semester, and my determination to keep improving has never been stronger. STEP was the key to changing my habits for the better. –Kenia M.

My favorite part of the STEP Program is the mentorship component. Every STEP Fellow is like a mentor. You can ask any questions about career, concerns, or anything else. My STEP Fellow helped me with interviewing and communication skills and even showed me out get involved on campus . - Ricky Y.

The STEP program lets me explore career paths in an environment that encourage exploration and discovery of my passions – Christina B.
