These are what past participants and mentors said about the Excel program:

“Excel is a great way for the incoming freshmen to get a head start on becoming the new leaders of Ball State. Forming relationships with upperclassmen really helps these students develop and mature faster, and Excel makes it fun! I'll never forget the times I was an Excel mentor.”—Sam Osborne, '09

“I enjoyed being an Excel mentor because it gave me a chance to connect with the incoming freshmen. If you come into college not knowing anyone, this a perfect program to make new friends and get your first taste of college life. Not only do you get to meet other incoming students but you also get to meet peers who can give advice and answer questions from one student to another. Through being a mentor, I have found new friends and look forward to seeing them grow as individuals.”—Jasmine Mathes, '11

“I would say that I loved participating in Excel! It helped me know a little more about the campus before I got here and it also helped me meet new people. I felt like I was a step ahead of a lot of the incoming freshman."—Lashay Moss, '12
