What was your first day like?

"Stressful! I didn't get the chance to walk around campus before my classes, so I couldn't find anything! Plus, I lived in the dorms furthest away from most of the buildings and I decided to carry every book I bought with me - not a good idea."

How did you adjust from high school to college?

"Pretty well, I went to a college preparatory school. I was used to having the work-load and having to study, not just remembering from when I learned it."

Why did you choose UNL?

"I chose UNL because they have a good Advertising and Journalism program. Also, because it was the best school in the state. I couldn't afford to go out of state!"

What is your favorite part about UNL?

"I really enjoy the Husker Spirit. Even if the Huskers are not the favorite team or home team for the students we all have extreme amounts of pride, it makes us unique and we stand out because of it nationally."

What advice do you have for incoming freshmen?

"My advice for incoming freshman is the obvious never get behind. In college you have only four or five courses as opposed to high school, but they are harder and require more work / projects. I would also say, have fun. These four years really do fly by.  I still remember when I was in the dorms and I think it was just two months ago. Don't regret anything, because these really are the best years of your life. (Real world sucks, you have bills, a full time job, hardly a social life, and loans to pay back!)"
