Top Tip to Mentees: 

College is about meeting new people and experiencing new things so some tips I would have is to put yourself out there and network, try new things, become more cultured. College is a time in someone's life where they can strive to be whoever they want so utilize it. Another piece of advice that is crucial in my opinion is that the reason why you are in college is to learn and allow yourself to have job opportunities after graduating so focus in the classroom. Don't blow off freshman year or believe it is as hard as it gets because it will get harder with time so it is important to start off strong. It is way easier to start strong and maintain a good academic standing than to start low and climb your way up.
