“My experience with the program has been thrilling, stimulating, and productive. My interest for certain things is challenged and I have endured enough to know what I like and dislike. I appreciate the time and consideration to have me enlisted in this program and would enjoy continuing to work with everyone!”

“BAT-LSAMP gave me a head start as a student researcher by experiencing a symposium in Lubbock as an observer; as well as giving me access and opportunity to research, professional, career, and student development tools that will help me grow in every area of my life. I am very grateful to be a part of this program and eager to see how the program will grow to advance the lives of other students.”
