Three Pieces of Advice for Prospective Students:

  1. Make a lot of friends! Your major or not, the friends you meet here are going to be the same friends you’ll have twenty years down the road.
  2. Treat yourself. College can get overwhelming- having to balance responsibilities, social life, personal life, and academics is a lot to fit in a single day. Don’t overwork yourself and understand that mental health is extremely important.
  3. Go out of your comfort zone. The only way to discover your true potential and grow as an individual is to go out of your comfort zone.
