Advice you’d like to share with the Incoming Class: Don't be afraid to try new things, even if you fail. College life can be scary at first, but it's the best time to test your limits. Step outside your comfort zone and see where it takes you!

MY BEST STUDY TIP: Be honest with yourself. If you want to do well, then invest time into reviewing the material early instead of cramming it all the night before. If you don't feel that you fully understand the material, reach out to various resources on campus such as the tutoring center and you peers.

My Time Management Strategy: Use a calendar (Google!). Put everything into that calendar from your class schedule, assignments/test dates and personal plans. It'll help you visualize how to budget your time accordingly.

Resources at Stevens I’ve Used: Academic Support Center, tutors, Fraternity reviews

What Do You Like Best About Stevens? The best part of Stevens is its location and campus. There's so much freedom granted by the open campus and the wealth of attractions nearby such as Newport and the City. There's also an amazing selection of food within walking distance to alleviate the cafeteria diet.
