McNair National Conference – Not all scholars were able to attend this conference. I am glad that I had a chance to attend. This conference included a space for networking, sharing and viewing research from all across the nation, and provided experience regarding what a research conference looks like. This opportunity was just one of the places I was able to show off all the hard work I put in over the summer. McNair has the ability to connect you with many people and opportunities for success. No matter what your definition of success is. They provide opportunities that are memorable and can build your resume. Of course, the experience is what you make of it, and I aimed to make it the extremely beneficial time that it was. These post are not meant to advertise McNair, but they are meant to show the benefits of such a great program. Have any of you been McNair scholars or in other research programs? What was your experience like?
