PGSS helped give me the confidence to pursue a career in mathematics. It allowed me to get a head start on collegelife and gave me a chance to learn how to work under the pressures of a rigorous academic program. I wouldn’t have been so successful in college without the skills I developed at PGSS. As a TA, PGSS also confirmed my desire to become an academic (and make a commitment to teaching) after seeing how students’ lives were positively affected after just five weeks.
