My advice for prospective students: Get involved right away! Finding small communities within a university completely enhances your experience. I have made lifelong friends in various organizations throughout campus, and I’ve become a better leader and student as well. There are so many opportunities at your fingertips, you just have to look for them.
My advice for current students: Don’t forget to take care of yourself! Yes, grades and life goals are so important, but so is your happiness. Make sure you’re doing something for yourself every day, whether it’s spending some time outside, calling a loved one or getting yourself a sweet treat. You will be better in the long run if you put yourself first.
My favorite thing about the Honors College: The close-knit community. So many of my best friends are in the Honors College, and living with them in the same year our first year, taking really cool classes together and eventually graduating together is such an amazing opportunity.
My reason for choosing the SCHC: When making my college decision, finding a place where I felt valued was so important to me, and that’s what I’ve found at the SCHC. The support offered here is unmatched. The staff, advisors and faculty truly care about you, and want to see you not just accomplish your goals, but enjoy yourself in the process.
My favorite things: Coffee dates, morning workouts, my Google calendar and my goldendoodle, Mya!
Songs I’ve completely memorized: The entirety of Taylor Swift’s discography.
