Advice you’d like to share with the Incoming Class: Put yourself out there! Everyone coming in as a freshman is new so there’s nothing to be nervous about.  Don’t be afraid to try new things, you could find a new hobby that you love even if it’s something you never thought you’d be interested in.

MY BEST STUDY TIP: Look over old tests and don’t be afraid to go to the professor’s open office hours with questions.

My Time Management Strategy: Prioritize and make a to-do list.  Get the most important things done first so you’ll have more time to do what you want.

Resources at Stevens I’ve Used: Peer Tutoring, Walk-in Tutoring Center

What Do You Like Best About Stevens? I love the sense of community that comes with a small school.  It’s great to be surrounded by students who all work hard and focus on academics but also know how to have fun.  Also, Hoboken is an awesome city where there’s never a shortage of things to do.
