Advice for fellow students:
"First, finding the why behind what they are truly interested in pursuing. It doesn’t have to be your major, and it doesn’t have to be your job when you graduate but please don’t waste four years of education without finding something you’d like to continue to learn about in your free time.
Second, taking advantage of the campus. It's beautiful, and you're paying for it so why not have bonfires, and why not be involved in at least one of the many clubs and organization that we have."
