What was the hardest part in your transition to college?

The lack of diversity in college

What general advice would you give to high school seniors?

Be involved! Get a campus job (even if the wage is $7.25), join clubs & other orgs, go to school events. BUT don’t overwhelm yourself. Don’t take on too much because it will interfere with you emotional/mental health as well as your education. Also, don’t forget to take care of yourself. Self care is vital in college because you cannot function if your mind or body are in the right place. One more thing, reach out for help. You are paying for of the services your college offers, so take advantage of them!!!
