What is one piece of advice you might be able to offer a middle or high school student?

Talk to everyone! Enjoy life on campus and live in the dorms for at least a year, longer if you are able to do so. My first night away from home was a huge shock for me, however, it absolutely got better! Someone from my dorm brought popsicles and made their way around the hall offering them to anyone who was around. We later gathered in the lobby and took our own tour of campus together, making sure everyone knew where their classes were. Throughout college and to this day, the people I met through this interaction are my best friends.
