Best college advice for prospective students: Take your time and make the best decision for you. Your time at university will go by so quickly so make lots of friends and enjoy your time, get to know your professors, and always make the best decision for you! One other thing I think is so important is to study abroad, even if it is your first time out of the country it is an experience that will change your life!
