Advice for the Class of 2018
Two campus residents have some advice for incoming freshman.
Pace yourself—Rome wasn’t built in a day. Maintain reasonable expectations. Enjoy the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of living on campus.
These words of wisdom are from Amanda Atkinson, house dean at Stouffer College House, and Campbell Grey, a resident faculty fellow of Kings Court English College House. Atkinson and Grey have lived side-by-side with undergraduate students for two and eight years, respectively.
They also encourage students to get to know their professors, and take the time to get in involved in activities that spark their passion.
“Now that you’re here, just do the things you love,” says Atkinson. “You won’t have much time for the other things, and employers would rather see you were really committed to two things, rather than dabbling in 10.”
