What made me choose Leeds Scholars was the fact that it chose me. Any organization that has a selection process usually indicates it is an organization of high regard. In addition to the absolutely brilliant friends I have in my cohort, Leeds Scholars has given me unparalleled access to resources and people on campus that I didn’t even know could exist, let alone be accessible by students. I have received great mentorship and guidance throughout my first year here and it has made my transition from high school to College much easier and actually pleasurable.
