Advice to underclassmen: Do not waste all your time on school work and homework, but do not slack in your school work either. Over achieving at school and doing nothing but school work will make you miss out on a lot of fun opportunities with friends. Do not accept less than all f your ability. Doing something just to get it done does not make you feel like you tried. Just try never give up.
