From the second years: What would you tell your first-year self?
“Take the bus!”
“Don’t feel guilty for not being able to do everything.”
“Let my high school friends know I care about them/ miss them.”
“Don’t stress about finding a major.”
“Explore. Try new things.”
“Give situations time, they’ll settle down.”
“Use the first semester to get adjusted to life at college, don’t worry about getting super ahead with your major. Especially chemistry.”
“This isn’t your defining moment.”
“Break out of the UVA bubble every now and then, C’ville is awesome.”
“That reading you’re putting off for tomorrow isn’t going to do itself.”
“You are never alone.”
“Find something you are passionate about.”
