Advice from Jessica to Incoming Freshmen and Graduating Seniors
"As with most other activities in life, you only get out what you put into it. Stetson University provides the opportunities, but it is up to you to take advantage of them. No one will force you to take a leadership role in an organization, get to know your professors outside the classroom, participate in athletics or promote Stetson University to potential future students. People are passionate about Stetson University because of the investment they have made in [the university], which is much more than just a financial investment. They have invested time, energy, and genuinely worked to develop relationships with their peers and mentors."
"Do not leave your Stetson University experience in DeLand! Become involved with [the university] after graduation; that means joining an alumni group, speaking at schools and fairs on behalf of Stetson University, taking an alumni leadership position with the university, or just calling up a couple of Stetson University alums who recently moved to the area to grab coffee, even if you did not know them well or did not hang out with their circle of friends in college. The more love you genuinely show for Stetson University, the more love you will receive in return from Stetson University."
