"When I came in during my orientation, I remember being taken aback by how nice the people were, and so I want to replicate that. As you're going through the orientation experience, do your best to imagine what you want your college experience to be like. When you can imagine yourself in this environment, eventually you're going to be in that environment, so you'll be able to succeed in everything that you do."
