“1. Keep taking on new challenges. I learned almost as much from my extracurricular activities and student jobs as I did from my undergraduate degree.
2. Mental health is important. Take care of yours and don’t be afraid to ask for help.
3. If you want to go to graduate school or a post-secondary program, it’s usually important to make sure you keep your marks up. You may not be thinking about this in first or second year, but it never hurts to try and keep those doors open in future.
4. If something is not working, don’t be afraid to switch programs. I did that after second year and it was a great decision for me.

“The university is a diverse place with diverse people. Take advantage of that by learning from those around you and engaging in the immense variety of opportunities. Whatever you do, do not just stay in your room and study; the world requires you to do much more than describe the Theory of Relativity or the stylistic prose of Mark Twain.”

“I would tell myself that it’s OK not to have everything figured out, and that study/research skills, personal development, and cultivation of hard work and curiosity are all more important than the details of my program and course choices. Also, I would have told my younger self that success at any endeavour is just the tip of a large iceberg, the remainder of which almost no one will ever see.
