Choosing to attend UW-Parkside has been one of the most rewarding decisions I have made. Parkside has provided me with an abundance of opportunities while preparing me for my future. Firstly, the education that I received from UW-Parkside is something that I think far exceeds that from a larger university. Due to the smaller class size, professors are able to explain things more in-depth and make time to meet with students individually outside of class. This ensured any question I had was not left unanswered, and I could understand the concepts I would need for the exam and in the future.
AssistSTEM MENTORING PROGRAM
The CNHS AssistSTEM mentoring program relaunched in the fall of 2019. The program is designed to provide academic support, advice, and guidance for the development CNHS students by more experienced CNHS students, and the program is reinforced in the motto "By Students, For Students".
The program successfully organized multi-departmental laboratory tours for roughly 40 students from Dr. Lewis's freshman seminar in bioscience and pre-health. The laboratory tours allowed to students to get an insight on what projects undergraduate students can perform in labs ranging from psychology to molecular biology. Mentors of the AssistSTEM reached out and mentored over 50 students in the fall of 2019. The program is also branching out to students at the high-school level. Mentors are actively working with local high schools to give short informative presentations in hopes to potentially mentor future Parkside Rangers.
