Advice for First-Year Students

As we adapt to our new environment of teaching, just remember to be kind to yourself. Try to find your community within the cougar family. Don't be afraid to ask any questions and seek  mentorship early. Lastly, attend your professor's office hours.

The App on My Phone That Gets the Most Attention

Linkedin. The ability to connect with individuals on a personal and business standpoint is beneficial and refreshing. Also, I love reading articles that are relevant, challenging, and insightful. For example, I read an article about "Why following your passion is terrible advice."
