“My first year in college was one of the best experiences of my life because I got involved on-campus. I lived in Oliver Hall, played intramural soccer and sand volleyball, and was a part of a first-year seminar course. At times I overcommitted myself, but learned from this experience by investing in a planner to organize and balance my academic and social involvement.”
