Advice you’d like to share with the Incoming Class: First piece of advice: With passion, you can achieve anything. Open your eyes to the world around you and make a difference. There is so much Stevens has to offer so try to take advantage of your time here, but take things slowly. Get assimilated to the environment and then dive in! Second piece of advice: Smile. Smile to your friends, your enemies and strangers because your happiness can spread like wildfire.

My Best Study Tip: Understand the concepts behind what you're learning. You will often see that exams have multiple lessons combined into one problem. Knowing why you're doing a certain process will allow you to tackle every question with full confidence.

My Time Management Strategy: Have a calendar (Google calendar is my personal favorite), write everything down somewhere so your mind isn't cluttered, get enough sleep and eat breakfast! These last two are essential for having productive days and fun weekends.

Resources at Stevens I’ve Used: Upperclassmen, Library, Office of Student Life, Tutors, Co-op Office, Massage Chair in the Counseling Center

What I Like Best About Stevens: The size of the school really allows you to become a personality on campus. This isn't for everyone, but the opportunity is definitely there.
