What would you tell your freshman self?

As you enter college you will notice how important time management is. You will start to have more free time compared to high school; try to use it wisely and plan your days out to avoid procrastination. The university offers many academic resources, and remember to utilize them. Your professors have office hours for a reason, attend them if you need clarification on what you are learning. Throughout your journey in undergrad, you may face some obstacles. You should not let them tear you down; instead, use it as a learning experience and reflect on how you will do things differently next time. Lastly, remember to take time out of your day for yourself. Self-care is extremely important as you start to take on more things at this stage in life.
