Katie Bascom

Commit, but don’t over-commit. Find two or three things you are sincerely passionate about and get really involved in those things, you will get a lot more out of going deep than going wide. Going into a club, organization, or activity with the intention to spend time and energy on it gives you a lot of freedom to care as much as you want, and also to meet and develop friendships with people who are not freshmen, not in your dorm, and not in your major. Those relationships will grow you and stretch you personally and academically. Also, wear bright colors in the middle of winter. It will make you a happier person.
