Learn to balance school and life. There's a big difference in your academics and social life at university compared to high school. It's easy to focus too much on one or the other and forget why you're here. University is a great place to make friends and memories but it's also a place to further your education. If you can learn early on how to balance both aspects, you'll be fine. If you find it hard, don't be shy to ask people in upper years how they manage their time, a lot of people here have gone through similar situations and can help guide you through your first year at MtA.
Going for pizza at Jack's with all of my friends! Nothing is better than taking a break from studying and hanging out with some friends while enjoying the best pizza in town.
I feel like I've changed a lot since coming to MtA. I've learned a lot more about myself and have been able to find out what I'm interested in. Everything from the people I surround myself with, to the music I listen to has changed a lot since coming to MtA and I couldn't be happier about it.
I wanted to go to a small school and still remain close to home without being too close.
