Student-to-Student Advice

I think most things in life work out best when there’s a good balance of work and fun and adventure and stability. I had the most amazing opportunity to study abroad my freshman year and it forever changed me.

I’m convinced there’s nothing more important for success in college than building good relationships. – Biological Sciences Sophomore
