I can see Marie's point of view easily, having been around good universities for a lot of my life; I can see Helena's (or Helen's) take at least somewhat."
The sentence uses take to avoid repeating point of view. But your sentence needs to use an apostrophe s with the second name, just like with the first name: Marie's.
As a noun take can mean point of view or interpretation. Several online dictionaries do not list this usage, and Collins lists it as "informal, mainly US." As a native speaker of American English, I can say it's informal but quite idiomatic.
Even in Collins, you have to go down to the 84th and last entry to find this meaning:
a version or interpretation
But the first 76 definitions of take are for the verb, so it's not as uncommon as one might be led to believe.
At least somewhat means to a certain extent. The speaker doesn't see or understand "Helena's (?) take" completely.
