Top Tip to Mentees: 

One of the tips I would emphasize most to incoming freshmen students would be to be as proactive as possible. Freshmen year can be overwhelming, but pushing yourself to step outside your comfort zone and get involved is extremely rewarding. By attending information sessions or joining one of the Krannert clubs, you can really gain professional knowledge and experience. Joining AKPsi has allowed me to grow as a leader and professionally. I would also suggest making friends in your classes and forming study groups. Classes at Purdue, especially in Krannert, are very challenging. By teaming up with others, you can get help on the problems you have questions on, and reinforce the material you know by explaining it to others.
