Use this important time as a student to determine your interests and seek challenges that foster growth. Prepare for classes, set goals, have experiences in your field of interest and be open to the possibility of wanting to make changes or modifications to your original plan.
Take advantage of the wonderful resources available, both on campus and beyond, including mentorship opportunities, academic conferences, student organizations, travel experiences and much more! Allow yourself to ask for help: there are many caring people on campus that want to provide support. Be inquisitive, meet new people and be kind to yourself!
