    If I Knew Then, What I Know Now

    If we could give advice to our first year selves, what would that be?

    10. Take advantage of the Reflection Room in the SLC

    A great spot on campus to relax and de-stress is the reflection room. Mindful Meditation and drop-in yoga classes occur here.

    9. In between classes, spend time in the Library

    Memberships are $10 annually and can be purchased at the King’s Connection.

    A valid student card must be shown when purchasing a membership.

    7. Go to the Write Place

    The Write Place is a writing support service provided by the Department of English, French, and Writing. Students from all disciplines come in to get one-on-one assignment help.
