How did your college experience help shape who you are?

My college experience continues to shape who I am as a person. I was shy and meek before and wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. I knew I had to start networking for my future. Networking is one of the great resources and benefits of the college experience. Additionally, I was both involved and employed on campus. I learned valuable skills that I continue to utilize as I work to guide college students. College is a great place to learn and develop as it shapes you.

What advice do you have for students beginning their college search?

My advice for students is to select a college that best fits you as a person and will help you achieve your career goals. Also, your college selection will be your home away from home. It should be a place where you are accepted for who you are as you will be spending the next 4 years of your life there.
