Advice for
incoming students:

By all means, ask questions and get advice…but remember that you are writing your own story.  Don’t be afraid to try new things, take some risks, move forward even when you don’t have clarity, and be a little crazy.

Catch phrase:

“Be yourself. No one can say you’re doing it wrong.”  –Snoopy, from Peanuts.
