The graduating class of Fall 2016 walked across the stage last Friday night. After four years or more, at the University of Wyoming College of Business, they are preparing to move forward in their careers and leaving college behind. They haven’t come all this way without learning a thing or two about the COB, though. These four students have some advice they picked up over their years at UW they'd like to share.
“The advice I'd give to underclassmen would be to get involved on campus, take risks to get out of your comfort zone, and make lots of memories,” Lillie Johnson, a marketing major, said. “College goes by in the blink of an eye; make the most of it! The one thing that I regret is not traveling more. Study abroad and take advantage of all the breaks in school.”
"Ask your friends for professor recommendations, and establish friendships in every class!” Levi Kelly a business management major said. “This network becomes an invaluable asset each semester."
Ask for Help
“It's ok not to know the answer and feel lost in class,” Jessenia Arbeca, a business administration major, shared. “Don't freak out, that's what office hours are for. We have amazing professors here at UW. They are more than willing to help you out, so just breath.”
My advice would be to stop and truly enjoy your time at UWyo because you have the rest of your lives to stress,” Christine Bessert, an MS accounting student, said.
These graduates are ready to leave the College of Business behind but they’re not taking all of their secrets to success with them. Do you agree with their advice or do you have some of your own? Let us know!
