Q: How has the SALT Center played a role in your success as a professional?
The SALT center helped provide me with some unique tools to manage my time, stay organized, and prioritize my tasks so well that they have become automatic in everything I do. Hands on coaching and various other forms of assistance were able to supplement my own efforts. Even though I am a few years removed from graduation, I still quite regularly recall and reuse things I learned through SALT to help me through my average work day such as how to take efficient notes and prioritize my tasks. I had a lot of difficulty with test taking and SALT provided me with incredible accommodations while I learned valuable skills that helped me with testing post-college when such accommodations weren’t available.
Q: What message of advice would you share with incoming SALT Center students?
The SALT center provides you an unbelievable amount of skills-training and assistance. However, the work and effort depends on you. There is no shortage of tools available for everything you need to make it through college and beyond, but it is up to you to seek out what you need, learn and implement. The SALT Center doesn't simply work hard to create the best program in the country just to help you through college. They set you up to learn how to level the playing field for life.
