Advice you’d like to share with the Incoming Class: Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Everyone on campus is really helpful and wants to see you succeed. Professors aren’t as bad as they seem and going to their office during their hours may actually be better.

MY BEST STUDY TIP: My biggest study tip would be to always ask for help if you are having trouble with something. There have been students before you that have taken that same class and requesting a tutor through the Academic Support Center is always helpful.

My Time Management Strategy: I personally, feel that keeping a calendar proves to be helpful. Scheduling time to do certain things can be difficult but with a calendar you can allot specific times to doing different tasks. Whether it is an electronic calendar, like Google, or a handwritten one, calendars always make planning and keeping track of things much easier.

Resources at Stevens I’ve Used: At Stevens, there are many resources that you will find to help you with almost anything. Personally, I go to the Schaefer gym to work out and train for fencing. I also go to the Walk-In Tutoring Center for any academic support I may need. Every so often, I try to relieve stress by going to the bowling alley in basement of Howe Center or by playing ping-pong in the student hall.

What Do You Like Best About Stevens? What I like about Stevens the most has to be its student-centered environment. Everything that we do on campus, including what we do in the classroom is dictated by us. Whether in the form of student activities held on campus or course surveys that we fill out at the end of each semester, we always have a say in what is going on around Stevens.
