Favorite Part About Being a Bearcat

Endless opportunities! Even though I am new to the Bearcat community, I have already found great ways to further my education and friendly people to help along the way.

Advice for Students

Do not be afraid of change! College is all about finding yourself and exploring your passions. You will not always know where this journey will take you, but that’s okay- enjoy the ride.

Don’t be afraid to ask for help.

Work hard but enjoy the work you do!
