Advising Tips:

Don't worry too much about making friends. It may take a little time and a few awkward interactions, but it will happen! Someone who you thought could not stand you may end up being one of your best friends. Just take a deep breath and keep an open mind.

To me, academic success is…

feeling like I have learned something. Even if an assignment is challenging or I don't get a fantastic grade, if I learned something from the experience that will help me moving forward than it was successful.
