Current students' advice on how to thrive...

 Ask Questions

I was terrified to ask questions when I was a freshman even though there were people whose job it was to answer my questions.

I wasn’t sure who to ask so I didn’t ask anyone. Pick a person, ask them, and they can tell you who to ask. Don’t be afraid to be wrong.

 Get Involved

The best thing that happened freshman year was working on assignments with other people struggling in the same class.

I got involved super quickly--jumping in was helpful. Join a club or get a job. Campus tutoring is also a good way to meet people.
