Get involved and enjoy! College is about exploring new things and having wonderful experiences. While adjusting to college life make sure to leave time to be social and active. Studies are important but so is enjoying yourself and making connections is important too.
Making sure I have time to relax. I am a part of a small number of clubs and also have a few jobs that take up a lot of my free time. That on top of classes can be exhausting! Everyday, even if it is just an hour, I try to find time to just be outside or in my room in a quiet space to relax and regroup. I also use that time to set up a general schedule to make sure you get everything done. A planner or phone calendar will be your new best friend!
Social Foundations of Education. There were students from all sorts of majors in this class with me including art, math, science, Education! It was amazing to learn and work with students who had other interests but all came together to learn how to work with others and teach. We explored many different topics and learned how to create an inclusive environment for students who come from different backgrounds.
Hairpin. It is absolutely beautiful to go up there day or night. Day time you get to enjoy the beautiful scenery of Alfred while at night you can star gaze as long as you want!!
