In the James Scholar Program, enrichment points have rewarded me with some of my favorite memories during my undergraduate career.

- Mi Pueblo elevated my mood so much to be able to be with people who also enjoyed speaking Spanish, and to do it in a less formal setting that wasn’t so high-stakes and that wasn’t really a classroom setting.
