“It was wonderful getting to know my student and seeing the steps she took throughout the summer. I feel like we were just getting to know each other and that she was beginning to open up. It would have been great to have had a few more weeks with her. I think she has the capacity to really learn a lot from research but the time went too quickly!” – SURE 2014 Mentor
