Advising Tips:

Reflecting back, I would advise students that it is okay to change your academic plan. I did multiple times and I still figured out my career and academic plan way before it was needed. College is a time to grow and change-- it is ok to not know!

To me, academic success is…

learning something new. I am still breaking myself out of the grade box, but learning and understanding something new is the most important part.
