“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.

“Get involved as much as you can. School is the time to learn, but not only in the classroom. There is so much opportunity on campus, it is important to find your passions and develop yourself. Once you get out of your comfort zone, you realize that things aren’t so scary.”

Career Accomplishments

“Get involved as early as possible, especially if you’re coming from a different country like me (I grew up and graduated from high school in Hong Kong). Your undergrad degree will become more fulfilling, rewarding, and enjoyable the moment you get involved. Because of all these activities, you will meet so many people that you never thought you’d meet in a million years and you will gain lifelong friends, and connections along the way. However, don’t overwhelm yourself with too many activities. Your academics are ALWAYS your first priority. Learn to prioritise your work better, and always make sure you form personal relationships with your professors and peers. You never know when they’ll come in handy – especially if you plan on pursuing further education. Most importantly, have fun! You only have one undergraduate degree, and you’re pursuing it at one of the top institutions IN THE WORLD, so make sure you make the most out of your four (or more) years here!”
