Share a defining and/or transformative classroom/educational moment?
I was having trouble understanding something in accounting so I went to my professor’s office hours to clarify what I didn’t understand. We started off talking about accounting but ended up talking about different fields I could go into with the degrees offered here which just showed me how important it is to build relationships with professors because they can be some of the best mentors.
What is your advice to incoming Hoyas?
Don’t be afraid to ask for help! Everyone was in your position just a few years ago and whether it be upperclassmen, professors, advisors, we are all more than happy to help you with anything!
