What I Wish I Knew My First Year

“Seek the professors out when you need help and get to know them better. The relationship you build with your professors not only serve you throughout the four years in college but also later on especially if you are interested in going to graduate or professional school.

Favorite Place on Campus

My favorite place on campus was my dorm space (apartment). I often invited friends over to study together or to hang out. I enjoyed having my own space and the independency that came with it.”
