The True Meaning of "Students Helping Students"
I remember sitting in my freshmen dorm room watching my parents leave. An overwhelming feeling of anxiety came over me as I analyzed my new surroundings. I had worked incredibly hard in both my preparation for the SATs and research on college admissions. Alone, I had tackled the unfamiliar topics of financial aid, student loans, and scholarships. Finally, it was move-in day at Stony Brook University and I did not feel accomplished. Instead, I felt like the obstacles had just begun and there was more hardship ahead of me.
