    I advice to try to get involved in any clubs on campus that you are interested in. You will be able to meet different people along the way that can turn into friends.

    Be open to a liberal arts education! It's great being able to take interesting classes that don't necessarily connect with my major, but still count towards my degree.

    Get ahead and make sure you understand what it means to schedule, plan, and organize. Let yourself have fun but not too much. It is always a perfect thing for students to get ahead and start to let themselves be involved. It let's connctions understand that the student is professional and ready to face the real world.

    Do not be afraid to explore, whether it be a class, a sport, or a club. Illinois Wesleyan has so much to offer, way more than one would expect from a private university. Take your classes seriously the first semester so you won't be behind second semester; IWU's classes are not to be taken lightly but can be a joyful learning experience if you keep up. Don't be afraid to go to Shirk, an incredibly high percentage of students work out, even if they are not competing for Wesleyan. Embrace the variety that Wesleyan encourages. Major props to my small, private university of a little over 2000 students for collaborating with students and expanding new ideas whose origins are in places other than the United States. Take risks! No matter what you believe, students can still be shy even in their college years. Speak up, stand up, and work towards the change you wish to bring forth in your community. Another thing about community, the Bloomington-Normal community provides endless volunteer opportunities, take advantage of those to expand your horizons!
