20 Suggestions for Incoming College Freshmen

Sally Perez-Ramos, MSD ’14
Manager of Communication and Online Programs

As you prepare for this exciting new chapter of your life, it is imperative you take the time to sit and reflect on the upcoming year. I tell incoming students every year, do not overwhelm yourself your first semester.  Take the time to adjust to this new change in your life, this independence you are now experiencing, this inside look into the world of “adulting”. I really appreciated the article, Twenty Suggestions for Incoming College Freshmen, because it outlines 20 suggestions for freshmen to consider – such as taking advantage of everything the university has to offer.

I encourage all of you to take advantage of the resources that are at your disposal – stop by Career and Professional Development, utilize the Writing Center, partake in Student Life activities, start familiarizing yourself with all the student services available to you at the university. But most important of all, take time for you. Take time to stop and smell the roses, to get a good night’s sleep, exercise your mind, body, and soul, and recognize your study habits and what works best for you. We look forward to having you on campus this fall and can’t wait to meet every single one of you!
