Work as hard as you can, but when you need a break, be sure to take it!

The most important thing that I can tell an incoming student is to work as hard as possible, even if that means not sleeping. The reward will come slowly but surely. I have tried my hardest this semester and can say that I’m having a better time now than I did in high school, both academically and socially.

Very often I find myself sleeping for only 3-6 hours a day because of schoolwork. But hey! I’ll repeat it again: IT’S ALL WORTH IT!! If you need a break, take it. Go to a party. Visit friends and family. Take a trip. Treat yourself for your own sanity, but don’t let that affect your grades. Always put school first. ALWAYS!
