Advice to Students: Speak up and do not be afraid to ask questions. It is critical to dedicate time to both play and work. They are both equally important, so strike a good balance. Keep in mind you are a legal adult and responsible for all of your actions, so be safe and vigilant. Please, report a crime committed against you or any crime you may witness.
