Advice to Incoming Students

You don’t have to have your whole life planned out by the first year—it is likely that your life plan will change several times, both in and after college. Maintain good relationships with your professors—they care about you and want to help you grow, academically, personally, professionally, and spiritually. They also have unique experiences and insights about life.
