Top Tip to Mentees: 

I think there are three tips I would really give to Krannert's incoming freshmen students. One would be to ask questions. If you are curious about a major, class, club, or anything, just ask someone. Whether it be a classmate, advisor, mentor, professor, or someone else just ask the question. Also in terms of classes, if you don't understand a concept, ask questions. This is your college experience, don't spend it with questions unanswered. Another tip I would give to Krannert's incoming freshmen students is to get involved. Whether it's in Krannert or outside of Krannert, I think it's very important to get involved and find a good group of people to surround yourself with. My third tip would be to think about the future. I think some freshmen think that once they've gotten into college they're set for life. I always find myself thinking of resume building and trying to make myself look unique to employers. Because the reason you're going to college is to get a degree, I think it is always important to be actively working towards a goal for that. I know I have used the launching business leaders model to help develop some active goals that will help me succeed in my desired career path and I think other incoming students would find that useful as well.
