What is your ultimate comfort meal or food?
So you’ve been doing this college thing for a while now. Any advice for students?
My advice to students is to pursue a career that grabs your attention and not to settle for a major that is said to be easier. It is okay to transfer schools if you are not happy with your decision and you are not the only one who will feel homesick at some point throughout the year.
