My Advice to Students

Try something new in college, whether it’s attending an event you wouldn’t typically go to or taking advantage of a different leadership opportunity! College goes by quickly, so get involved! Also, get familiar with and use the resources at the Career Center early. Doing so can help you link your passions with potential career opportunities.
