What does TRAC mean to you?

I am proud to be a TRAC Fellow because I believe the program has a great positive influence on the Lehigh community and because it actively emphasizes the importance of peer-to-peer communication education. As students, we are constantly exposed to guest speakers who harp on the importance of communication in life outside of school. Typically they're referring to business, but on another level, effective communication is an enabler for more meaningful and understanding relationships throughout our lives. The opportunity to develop such skills is not readily available through typical classwork but thanks to TRAC, I have had the opportunity to explore communication for myself and then share them with the student body through individual and group conferences. I will always be grateful for the impact that the program has had on me and I look forward to seeing the way it continues to change Lehigh's academic environment in the future.
