Hobbies: I enjoy rock climbing, dancing (hip-hop and break dancing), clubbing, meeting new people, enjoying life, and studying philosophy
Advise to New Students:
Make friends and lots of them too. Get involved in campus events and give yourself a reason to enjoy going to college. Don't just go to classes then go back home, you'll eventually realize that it is probably the most boring thing you could do.

Advise to New Students
Do your best to be successful in your first semester because a good first semester will open more doors for academic achievement. Learn where you can find resources and help about your classes and major on campus. Try to get involved on campus activities such as clubs, programs, and more in your second semester because you need to reduce as much pressure as possible.
