After a wonderful spring break the Mizzou Scholars are starting to settle back into the Scholarship House. This upcoming Sunday is New Scholar Day, and everyone is excited to meet the New Scholars. However, the end of the year is always bittersweet. We are excited to meet the new freshman and create more friendships. But we are also sad to see our seniors go, because they will be missed and the chapter won't be the same without them.
Over spring break I reached out to our seniors and asked them to give one piece of advice to the New Scholars, and here is what a few of them said:
"Never get behind, always get ahead."
"Make sure to find your niche at Mizzou. There are so many opportunities for you to grow. Don't be afraid to put yourself out there."
"Get your stuff done, but have a great time and enjoy it."
"Enjoy Mizzou's beautiful campus as much as possible."
"Be involved within the Evans Scholars chapter. Spending time with people in the chapter is important, and you should make an effort to get to know everyone, and establish positive relationships with them."
"Stay organized. Get involved. Let yourself have fun. If you can't do those three things, then you will have regrets, which is something nobody should ever have."
We only have a short amount of time in college and living in the Evans Scholarship House. Even though four years seems like a long time, it goes by faster than you can imagine, so here at Mizzou, our seniors' advice overall is to make every moment count!
