What does TRAC mean to you?

I believe the TRAC program has a lot to offer not only to the fellows involved in the program, but also to the rest of Lehigh students, as well as professors. I worked with a TRAC fellow for the first time in my fall semester of Freshman year and definitely believe that the peer-to-peer aspect of program helped me in my ability to fulfill assignments centered more around what the professor was looking for. Because the fellow is familiar with the syllabus prior to assignments are given, the TRAC program allows more efficient communication and clarity between the professor and students, which adds to an overall more pleasant and less stressed work environment. I am thrilled to be able to exploit my love of helping others, and my interest in a wide variety of subjects to thrive as a TRAC fellow and to be available to students as both a friend and mentor.
