University can be a bit overwhelming, but with some planning and organization, it can be a lot less stressful. Be persistent in seeking assistance when it comes to knowing which courses you need to take in order to complete your degree and stay on track with your goals. It may be difficult and stressful at times, but if you put in the time and effort, there are many helpful and caring staff who will go the extra mile to make sure you are confident in your decisions.
