Tip to Mentees: 

  • I would tell incoming Krannert freshman to not sweat the small things.  Try your best, get help when you need it, strive for excellence and accept the  outcomes knowing you gave it your all.  If you get a bad grade on an exam, it's okay if you did your best.  Just keep trying your hardest and things will work out in the end.  Also like I mentioned, don't be afraid to ask for help.  I have had several tutors throughout my time at Purdue, which is one of the reasons I have a 3.9 GPA.  When I don't understand something, I make sure I do my best to get help and figure it out.  Celebrate the good grades, and don't dwell on the bad ones.  If you give 100% effort and just believe in yourself, that is when success will come.
