Hello Future Pirates! The new school year is approaching! Here is some helpful advice for incoming freshmen! The first and most important is GO TO CLASS, it is true that some of your classes will not require attendance but this is only because your professors assume by college you are mature enough to make your own decisions and they hope you will choose to attend. Attending class will make the class much easier for you to understand and should help you get a better grade. Also, get involved! Whether it is joining a club, playing an intramural sport, or volunteering within the community, getting involved not only looks good on your resume, but will make it easier for you to meet new people. I hope these next four years will be as fun for you as the past two have been for me! Good luck!
