All the opportunities that MSU has provided me!

What is the most important advice that you would give students?
Never let anyone tell you that you cannot do something!! As an MSU student, there are so many resources available to you and so many people who care about you. Search for those people and those resources and make your dreams come true!

Why should students go to SI?
Student should participate in SI because it is a free resource that helps student learn how to study and better learn the information in the class. They have the opportunity to get to know other students in their classes and learn different study techniques that will not only help in their SI class, but also the classes that they take in the future.

Why should students be interested in becoming an SI Leader?
I would not be who I am today without the SI program. It has provide me the opportunity to better myself through personal skills, professional skills, communication, networking, and learning new study strategies for my own classes. I have also built many friendships through SI. I am truly blessed to have been apart of the SI program for 3 years now and I am excited for everything that we have planned for the future in SI.
