The SEE program has been one of my favorite experiences as a freshman at Truman State University. If I was told to repeat it I would. It was a life changing experience in my perspective, why? Because I was this shy girl that didn’t know how to interact with others. I was worried that I would come to Truman and not find close friends. The SEE program helped me to figure out relationships and to meet other people from different backgrounds and beliefs. This experience gave me hope as a first year college student. It not only helped me social wise but education wise, where we had study sessions split throughout the week and scheduled activities. This might sound boring and inconvenient but the strategies that I picked up from those planned days and weeks were actually a stepping stone of being an efficient student and a survival mechanism to survive Truman State University.
