SOME ADVICEApproach: Your attitude and perspective is the key to your success inclass, ﬁeld, and life. Be open to new experiences.Active: This is your experience, create it for yourself. Question everything.Search out additional learning opportunities. Create professional relationships.Utilize ofﬁce hours with your professors. Participate in activities.Awareness: Take this time to challenge your beliefs about yourself,others, the role of social worker, and the world. Appreciation: Even though you are paying tuition, attending classes,providing free services to others, and working extremely hard, be thankful forthis experience; it is one of a kind and a earned privilege to witness thetriumphs and tragedies of others.
