One amazing thing I found at Sierra was the determination and networking among science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) students. I didn’t expect this when I first began at Sierra. I pretty much thought I was going to be on my own, but this wasn't the case at all. It was great to have a close network of people who shared a lot of the same classes and interests because we would work together to achieve our goals.Nadia Delgado Toledo, Biochemistry Major and TRiO Graduate
