As a first year student, the WellsLink program helped to build my confidence and gave me the drive necessary for success. I became more goal-oriented and was able to set high standards for myself, because I knew that someone else here in OMA believed in me. The stable support system in OMA gives you the extra boost you need to stay motivated and set goal beyond societal limitations. My social and academic success in college would not have been possible without the support of my WellsLink family.

I've learned that with only such a small amount of time, there can be much growth. I feel that Dimensions has pushed me to grow as a young woman and to acknowledge that growth.

MEN has opened me up to different people. It has made me realize there are more people on this campus who have other stories and backgrounds that are not similar to mine. I met tons of new people through MEN, who are all headed in a strong direction in terms of their education and their goals. It’s just really cool to have a program like this that allows for this kind of space to be made. We talk about things in here that we really don’t talk about outside in public. It has been a great private space.
