Words from 2019-2020 Resident Scholars:
"I love meeting new residents as well as making friends. From the past, I enjoyed stories which are told by the elderly people and also people who were a previous student at the U of A. Also a student wouldn't turn down free food provided by NASA. NASA provides support from education, financial, spiritual, and so much more. NASA wants students to be able to continue in higher education and they want to help you achieve your goals."
