Melissa Vienneau, Psychology student:

“Meeting with Kimberly Nash-McKinley, a STU alumna, through STU Connects was such an immense privilege. She was incredibly insightful and kind; it was such a great experience to sit down with her and be able to receive advice and guidance for my future career goals. I was able to get a better grasp of what my interests could lead to, and share ideas on what I can be involved with now during my studies here at STU!”
