We asked some Beloiters to tell us the advice they would give their younger, past selves—about college, their time at Beloit, and life in general. Here are some of their responses:

“I would tell my freshman self to take advantage of the privilege of being in college and to take initiative and control of my own education. But most importantly to challenge myself to work harder.”

David Bender’14
[David Bender]
“Seek help from your professors, as they're willing to give you guidance not just academically but in life beyond the classroom”

Marilyn Medina’15

[Marilyn Medina]
“I would tell my freshman self that it's okay to have fun as long as you make it to class and do your work. Also, take advantage of the opportunities Beloit has early on such as clubs, study abroad, etc. ”

“Be honest with yourself and others, and don't be too worried with what others think about you—there's not enough time for that.”

Rasheda Hughes’14
[Rasheda Hughes]
