Words of wisdom for future transfer students:

Do your own thinking on all occasions and don’t let anyone else set limits on what you can achieve. Make school a top priority in your life and give it your all. These years will past regardless of what you choose to do, so why not choose to invest it in something that will last and benefit you for the rest of your life?
