Three Pieces of Advice for Prospective Students:

  1. Don’t be afraid to get involved – doing so has allowed me to make some friendships I know will last a lifetime as well as provide me with mass amounts of wonderful opportunities.
  2. Branch out – coming to a state school, as an in-state student, it’s easy to stick to what you know. While it is absolutely okay to maintain those friendships, you shouldn’t hesitate to get out of your comfort zone a little and create new friendships.
  3. Prioritize – entering college is a whole new world and you will have a million and one things to do. Just be sure to remember what’s most important.
