FirstGen Advice

"Don't be afraid to just ASK! Ask questions, ask for help, ask for guidance. There are many of those on campus that can guide you to the right person, the right resources, or in the right direction. What many undergrads don't know is that there are plenty of resources available, and if you don't ask you may never know what opportunities are out there. It never hurts to ask. The worse that could happen is getting a clear answer, a yes or or no.

Engage and Participate! Now is the time to try new things and engage your fellow students and community at large. Have you ever wanted to learn to surf? Sign up for an inter-mural class. Ever been curious of the history or Native American communities? Sign up for an Anthropology or History course. Want to know what its like to wine taste? Sign up for a wine making class. The possibilities are endless. Join a club, play a sport, become active on campus."
