What Our Participants Are Saying
This is a great program and really helped me reflect on myself and how to be a better person.
I’m sitting here thinking if this program didn’t exist, where would these young women get all this great information? Yes, it is very needed.
It is needed to help build community between female students at Purdue. It helps provide a forum that is not located anywhere else on Purdue’s campus.
The SSSS program is a great way to bring women together and to inspire them to succeed academically, socially, emotionally, and mentally.
All young women need that safe place that is open, honest, true, genuine, and similar (women). We need to empower, grow, and learn one another.
It’s a small group of African American women on this campus I feel will benefit personally and academically with this event. It is empowering and inspiring.
Loved the variation of ages of facilitators; Having peers help conduct this event made me want to listen more.
