What do you like most about being an Honors student?

I love the staff! The professors and Dr. Bierly are excellent and always a pleasure to work with. The other students as well are so helpful and have been great allies in my college career. My positive connections I’ve made in the Honors College have been so meaningful.

Leadership and involvement at STATE:

I was the Marketing Chair for Lemon Club in 2022, and I was an Honors Peer Mentor last year as well!

What advice do you have for incoming Honors students?

Keep your weekends FREE!!! Do your homework throughout the week as best you can in order to hold your weekends sacred. That has been the most impactful advice for my mental health and it helps me stay on top of my work and do well both academically and mentally, so if you are able to keep them free of school, DO IT!!
