"As a freshman, I dipped my toes into almost every club and over the year weeded out the ones I really wanted to take part in. I hoped to gain true knowledge and world-wide wisdom. Experiences that will last me a lifetime... Do what you love, never settle for less than better than your best, think creatively and don't roll over when challenged."
