How I can help you: I can provide you advice on anything from classes, GE's and studying tips to what you can do around Davis. I have attended a lot of advising sessions the College of Biological Sciences and I am almost finished with all of the general Biology major classes. As a result, I can answer any question in regards to majors in the College of Biological Sciences. I have also attended most of the events that UC Davis does every year and I know my way around downtown Davis. If you have any questions about the town, Sacramento, or UC Davis, I am more than happy to answer them.

When I started at UC Davis: I was really nervous about living in the dorms, being away from family, making new friends, and succeeding in my classes. I was really excited about meeting new people, taking classes that I found interesting, making new friends, independence, and for all the new memories I was going to make.

Advice for incoming first-year UHP students: My number one advice is to enjoy each and every moment and to step out of your comfort zone. By stepping out of your comfort zone and trying new things, you may find new things that you like, make new friends in the process, and make amazing memories as well.
