In her own words: “ESP is an amazing program that has helped make my transition from high school to college much smoother. ESP allowed me to adjust to the rigor of classes at CWRU before the fall semester began. The program also informed me about all of the resources available on campus that I may have been unaware of otherwise. Because of ESP, I have stronger time management and organizational skills which will contribute to my success in college and beyond. The program is run by wonderful individuals who have the student’s best interest in mind and provide lots of tools and guidance to help us succeed. Finally, ESP helped me build friendships with my fellow CWRU students, having these connections prior to the fall semester helped me feel like a part of the social community at Case. This is especially important since it is harder to make friendships with social distancing and zoom classes.”
