“I’d say set a routine and stick to it. Don’t let the procrasination take over as much as you can and doing the assignment you really don’t want to will feel so much better when it’s done. And don’t take 8 a.m. [classes], it’s not worth it.”

“Make as many friends as possible. You don’t need to be best friends with them, but just get to know people.”

Sarah Poirier ‘24

“Stay curious about the world. Don’t overexert yourself [and] learn how to take breaks. Be best friends with your professors because it will help you go far in life later on.”

Stephen Hook ‘25

“My advice for freshmen is to be comfortable having evolving friendships throughout their time here. The people you hang out with during your first weeks on campus may not be your forever friends and that’s okay. As you and the people around you grow, your relationships will change. Know that making new connections is an integral part of every semester here at WAC.”

“Find time for yourself. What I do is I have a hard limit that I won’t do any work after 10 p.m. If it’s not done, it’s not gonna get done.”

Skye Hass ‘24

“Go to clubs and events to help you befriend people outside of your department. Making connections in your own department is great! But it’s even better to connect to the campus as a whole! Say yes to opportunities you’re offered. Some of the best things I’ve done in college have happened because I said yes to an unexpected offer.”
