Advice you’d like to share with the Incoming Class: Embrace your Freshman year! You are a college student! Have fun. Do things you have never done before. Start the new chapter of life with a bang. With that said, you are at school to learn and improve yourself. Study hard. Understand the gravity of the situation you are in. Whichever career path you envision yourself doing, you must work hard to get there. Focus on school and be cognizant of the decisions you choose to make. Be wise. Be thoughtful. Be selfless. Be spontaneous.

MY BEST STUDY TIP: Stay on top of your work. A lot of times assignments are due a week or two later but try your best to pound it out now. Doing work in advance will allow you to be ahead and understand material during lectures. Read what you will be learning in lectures before class so you can truly grasp the information.

My Time Management Strategy: Be organized. Plan out your week in advance. Stick to a schedule and you will be most efficient with your time. If you can be efficient, you will be able to accomplish throughout the week. With proper time management, you will avoid procrastinating and in turn do better in school.

Resources at Stevens I’ve Used:  Academic Support Center Review Sessions, Tutoring Service, Teaching Assistant’s Office Hours, and Kappa Sigma’s Review Sessions

What Do You Like Best About Stevens? The size of the student body and the proximity of all of the academic buildings provide a sense of community which I enjoy most about Stevens.  In addition, I appreciate that Stevens offers opportunities as early as freshman year to prepare students for a career after graduation.
