"DEAP is more than just another program on campus; for me, it’s the reason I’m still in college today. After receiving a 0.4 GPA my first semester, I was determined to turn things around, and DEAP helped me do just that. Mrs. Shabazz is . . . an awesome mentor who is always there in a time of need, whether personally or academically. My second semester here at IUPUI, I received a 3.5 GPA and made the dean’s list. Since becoming involved in DEAP, I have been excelling academically and still maintaining a job and home life."
