"The ECHS Accelerated Program has helped me adjust to UTEP faster. I have been able to join many programs at UTEP and connect with students. Due to the pandemic, I have not been able to attend UTEP in person. Yet, I have gotten to get such a fun and amazing virtual experience. I have gotten to meet different types of professors. I have been taking classes that I enjoy and I'm passionate about. I am so thankful for the ECHS Academic Success Center. It has helped me as an ECHS student get all the resources I need to succeed."
