"Staying organized will help you overcome your weaknesses"

Major: Philosophy and English
Hometown: Schenectady, NY

Sydney's advice:

While knowing your strengths is beneficial, knowing your weaknesses is significantly more important. Staying organized and keeping a schedule really will help you to succeed despite whatever those weaknesses are. Seek help when you need it – this can help you to overcome areas where you are not as strong. Your professors, staff, and fellow students are here to help you and the university as a whole strives to provide the best possible learning experience you can possibly have. But it all starts with your own individual effort and motivation to succeed.
