"What I really learned is that if you really want to succeed and you take your education seriously and you take yourself seriously, people around you really want to help and support you and that is what I got out of Stockton the most. I learned that it's okay to ask for help and people have answers for you."
Olivia Norton, First Gen Alumna '19
