Piece of Advice for First Year Students: 

Don't be afraid to quit something. College can be a great time to try new things, but you're not necessarily going to love every new thing you try, or you may no longer enjoy something you were involved in during high school. It is absolutely okay to leave something behind that doesn't bring you fulfillment. College is a time to find out what you like, but equally important is finding out what you don’t like, be that your major, an internship, or a club. Don’t ever feel like leaving something makes you a failure - often closing one door will open another amazing opportunity.
