Advising Tips:

My greatest tip would be creating a strong line of communication with your roommate. Next would be putting yourself out there by joining clubs and being open to making new friends. Third, prioritize alone time and self care. Next, I would say to stay organized by using a planner. And lastly, utilize the resources on campus from tutoring to healing circles.

To me, academic success is…

not just about a good grade. It's about yielding an understanding of the material and being able to apply it in other courses. I also think academic success at Agnes is connected to your understanding of self care and personal goals.
