Share your best advice for incoming freshmen:

Have fun and take classes that are fulfilling to you. GPA isn’t everything.

What or who do you acknowledge for your academic success, and ranking in the top 2 percent of your senior class?

Caring too much about my GPA and sleep deprivation.

What life lessons or observations have you gained about yourself, and the world, during the 2020-21 school year?

Learning in a group setting is a lot more sustainable than learning alone. Having separation from where you sleep and work is crucial for productivity. Time is a construct.
