Welcome Class of 2018! Relish your time as a college student and take part in the rich college experience your women's college provides. You've been handed the keys to the kingdom, so enjoy and appreciate this wonderful opportunity! Memories created during these years will last forever.
What no one tells you about the "promised land" of higher education is that it is wonderful, but it is not always an easy place to navigate. Moving away from home for the first time is scary, and it is okay to be scared.
Best of luck, Class of 2018! Bypass the "gut" courses and challenge yourself with robust learning opportunities that are supported by critical thinking. It will be more difficult but well worth the extra efforts!
