Advice to Prospective Students:

Be Humble. It’s all right to say “I don’t know” and “That’s a good point". In fact you should.

Be Bold. There is an amazing world waiting for you to explore it. Don't be afraid to make some mistakes. if you learn from them they are only discoveries.

Be a lifelong learner.

Be Curious. Ask meaningful questions and listen more than you speak. Most importantly, don’t limit your curiosity to the classroom. Your learning only begins there. Engage in a service project, study abroad, talk to individuals outside of your usual group. To best serve people you have to understand them first.

Be Grateful. What you focus on you follow.
