Jennifer Rowe knew that making the transition from a small college in Nashville to a graduate mathematics program at the University of Kentucky would be tough. That is why she took a detour this summer to Bryn Mawr College. At Belmont University, said Rowe, 22, "I was the only math major out of 400 students" in the graduating class. Now, she's worried about graduate school, where she wants to get the doctorate she'll need to become a college professor. She's hoping that the EDGE program will smooth her path.
