5) What is the one piece if advice you would give to an incoming freshman?
“Always work hard for what you want and don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. College can be scary at first, but stepping out of your comfort zone, making new friends, and participating in events around campus will make things a lot less scary. “
