To relax and try to enjoy the experience of making new friends and being in an environment where everybody is rooting for you and pushing you to succeed! Adjusting to a new place can be difficult, so find places on campus where you can be comfortable and yourself (and try to have a space like this that isn't your dorm room!).
Separating spaces for relaxation and fun from spaces for work and concentration. In order to get work done, I make sure to be in a place where I can concentrate and focus in on the tasks at hand. Then, I have spaces that I try my best to not to work in, so that I can ensure that I am giving my mind a break when I can.
Foundations! As an art student, foundations is an amazing experience that allows you to make as much of a mess that you want and continually create work all the time. The key is to take it one project at a time and have as much fun with it as you can!
How accepting everybody is. No matter what, the Alfred community will accept you for who you are and wish that you succeed in whatever you want to do.
