Why I wanted to be a part of Stroud: 

I wanted to be a part of the Stroud Scholars Program because I can see my high school self being a student who would have greatly benefited from the opportunities and experiences of the Stroud Program. I was fortunate to have worked with mentors who dedicated their time and resources in supporting me as a student and I would love to be able to pay that forward to another generation of leaders!

One piece of advice I'd give to high schoolers: 

Don’t try to involve yourself in everything at once! Pick one or two things to try or dedicate yourself to and take as much as you can out of those experiences. Give yourself grace to not be perfect and give yourself permission to say “No” and not over-commit to anything that spreads you too thin. Having the time and space to just sit there and do nothing is just as important for your mental health.

Why I wanted to be a part of Stroud:

I am a first-generation college student and I understand how intimidating it can be thinking about the future and going to college without having the knowledge and resources as my more privileged peers. I think it's amazing to be able to work with and support students who are wanting to succeed and excel!

One piece of advice I'd give to high schoolers: 

Comparison is the thief of joy! You are your own unique person with personal interests and style and hobbies, and that's amazing! You don't have to follow every trend you see online or feel like you need to be doing more because you feel like other people around you are doing "more." We're all on our own journeys, so have fun and have the courage to be authentically yourself.




Pilot Year Committees

Departmental Involvement

While the Stroud Scholars Program now lives in the office of Summer Session, the Collaborative for Community Engagement (CCE) co-led the design of the program and the launch of a 2020 pilot, along with a large group of campus collaborators. The pilot cycle was developed and implemented by a shared leadership structure with representation from CCE, the Office of Admission, Education Department, Sociology Department, and Summer Session. In our cross-campus committee structure we have representation from K12 educators, faculty from diverse academic departments (German, Math and Computer Science, Physics, Sociology, Education, Religion, and Psychology), the Writing Center, Quantitative Reasoning Center, Colket Center, First-Year Experience, Student Life, the Butler Center, Financial Aid, Housing, and Events.
