Why did you choose to come to Lake Forest College?

I chose to come to Lake Forest College because I received several scholarships from this school which resulted in LFC being my best option.

Why did you want to be a First Connection Peer Mentor?

I wanted to be a First Connection Coordinator because I enjoyed being a mentor last year, and I wanted to be a part of the planning process to ensure mentees receive everything they need to get started on campus.

What academic advice do you have for our incoming First Connection mentees?

Finding a balance between academics and your social life starts with time management. Keep an open mind and find people who motivate you and that you can motivate.
