So my advice for incoming freshman, I'm going to any college, not just Washington State University would be to try new things that you want usually gravitate towards. Putting yourself out there is scary, but usually things that are worthwhile are not easy. So I would recommend trying a bunch of different clubs the beginning ofyour like school here that you wouldn't usually try and trying a lot of them so you can figure out where you fit and where your place is on campus. I would also recommend introducing yourself to your purest of people in class. People you walk by just people that you get a good vibe from, you think could be interesting. Um, so just being like, hey, my name's Aidan, what's yours is always a great start. The third thing that I don't think it's like very often talked about is introducing yourself to your professors and how valuable that can be because developing relationships were professors, at least for me, has really enriched my college experience. Um, having relationships with your professors can provide you with job opportunities and connections as well as having that reliable person to go to for advice. I know for me, When I was a freshman, I was like, Oh, my gosh, my parents aren't here. So there's you know the college is the town, which means there's a lot of young people and not a lot of older people. So it was really nice to have to know that I had, um, adults that I could rely on and go to. I think it's pretty common that scary things are usually the most fulfilling.
