SUU Orientation

Major: Communication
Hometown: West Jordan, UT
Year in School: Junior

Favorite thing about SUU: Small campus which makes it easy to walk from class to class. Campus is beautiful, especially the bell tower which is my personal favorite. Because of the small student population on campus you get to build stronger relationships with many people around campus and see the same people often. Professors will take the time to help you if you need it, and they will remember who you are. Being really involved and attending all the athletic events are also my favorite.

Biggest freshman mistake: Not getting involved and not utilizing the resources that are offered on campus such as, CAPS and career center

Piece of Advice: GET INVOLVED!!! It will make your college experience so much more enjoyable, and you will also make so many friends from it. Get to know your professors, and go to their office hours. Professors are really there to help you, and want to help you, so utilize it!! Go to campus events and support our athletics! Remember that studying and good grades come before having fun, so work hard. Don't procrastinate. Saying NO every once in a while is okay!! Don't follow everything your friends do. Make sure you do what you want to do and you experience what you want to do.
