I was able to gain insight on different resources around campus to help with my transition to the G. In class, we also talked a lot about character strengths and weaknesses and I was able to start working on some of my weaknesses, in order to begin the process of transforming into the best version of myself. I also enjoyed meeting people in class who were going through similar challenges that I was because we were able to help each other out. We also got to experience things not every freshman was able to and learn advantages and smart habits we can take and utilize throughout my college years and even when I’m in my career.
