Advice for Students: "Take advantage of all that college life has to offer! Find opportunities to connect with faculty, staff and other students but always remember to take care of the reason that you are here. Do what you have to do first for your academics then do what you want to do with your remaining free time. Learning how to successfully prioritize your responsibilities while managing your time will help you in every aspect of your life now and in the future."
Advice for Students: "The most important qualities you need to succeed in college (and in life) are 'want to' and 'will do'. If you want to achieve your goals, one cannot exist without the other; you must have both. Remember, faith without works is dead."

Advice for Students: "Treat getting your education as a full-time job. Sacrificing money and free time in the short term will benefit you in the long run."

Advice for Students: "Read. Complete reading assignments before class. Think about what you read. Talk about it with others. Write down your questions and thoughts. Participate in class discussions by bringing up these issues. See your professor during office hours to discuss. If you think what you learned could be useful to you, use it. If you think it could be useful to others, share it. Reading only gains value when you learn from it, use or share that knowledge with others."
