What I wish I knew as a Freshman: Upper Class Panel, 4:00-5:30 p.m.

Taking off to college can be a very frightening and overwhelming experience. However, with proper guidance this experience for the most part can become a rewarding and fulfilling journey. This roundtable aims to help you better understand the quintessential college life and help you understand that you are not alone. Many students at some point in their journey have made mistakes for many reasons; the goal is to embrace the idea that these mistakes are part of your growth, to be able to identify stressors, to come up with a strategic plan to improve yourself, and to become successful in your journey.  

This roundtable talk will address concerns such as: 
- How to choose your major
- What are the resources available to help you succeed?
- How to navigate your way through college, setting realistic goals for yourself
- How to have a clear concept of my pace versus their pace
- How to be proactive, allowing no defeat
