Slug Orientation Student Panel Live Q&A – July 11th

Slug Orientation Student Panel Live Q&A – July 11th


hey everyone and welcome to the first
student panel as part of your slug orientation for UC Santa Cruz my name is
Calvin I’ll be one of your orientation leaders for today I’m also joined with
three other awesome amazing orientation leaders of amber and May and Vanessa and
we’re gonna help you answer some questions about UC Santa Cruz to be a
little bit more specific the questions that we’re kind of looking for to answer
ar questions based around our experiences what we’ve been able to do
around the campus and so yeah you can start putting your questions now if you
haven’t done so already and we’re gonna be reading off the questions off of a
monitor just above the camera so if it looks like we’re kind of like looking up
a little we’re just trying to read the question so don’t let that distract you
other than that we’re gonna start off with our introduction starting with
Amber Hi y’all my name’s Amber Mateer I use she/her/hers pronouns and I actually recently graduated from UC Santa Cruz this June with a Sociology and Art degree I was a Merrill affliate while I was here on campus and I was
involved with a bunch of groups on campus including University Relations
the competitive sports office the Merrill programs and leadership office Merrill
student government NIRSA and then of course orientation now
for three years and when I was a Merrill student my sophomore year I actually
painted a mural up at Merrill so if you do find yourself up there one day in the
Merrill moat which is right underneath Vivas a Mexican restaurant you can see
my mural it has roses and sunflowers awesome
so like I said earlier my name is Calvin I’m currently a fourth-year a
first-generation student affiliated with Kresge College studying
chemistry before or while working for orientation as well I also have worked
for the crown Merrill dining hall as well as starting my training for
becoming a tour guide in the fall some things about me are that for the past
four years I’ve been a part of the student organization called Circle K
International and that’s kind of like Key Club for high school just for
college and it’s a lot of fun a lot of fun some other things are that I really
enjoy hiking I love to play video games and make youtube videos and if you need
food recommendations I got you because I love to eat all over campus
and all around Santa Cruz hi y’all my name’s May I use she/her/hers pronouns I’m going
to my third year here at UCSC I am majoring in art and film so that’s
a double major and I’m concentrating in digital media because I want to go into
animation so during my free time I spent a lot of time watching Disney movies
Pixar movies I also am involved in student government and I work for the
programs office I’m affiliated with Merrill College so if you all ever see me around
be sure to say hi everybody my name is Vanessa I use she/her pronouns I’m a
fourth year from Cowell college and up until last quarter I was studying
robotics engineering but I’m currently transitioning to business management
economics I was born and raised in Venezuela so Spanish is my first
language I moved to Temecula California when I was in grade school that’s a city
in SoCal I love Disney I would I love to sing and dance and I’d love to
be able to perform for Disney one day I’m just a big fan in general and
big fan of TV and movies I love Harry Potter and Game of Thrones Marvel movies
and Friends other than that I’ve been working for orientation I’m also a board
member for a club on campus called Society of stem sisters and you can find
me playing tennis at the tennis courts or giving tours around campus all right
so the first question that we have today is when is the slug course two due so it
is due July 14th 11:59 PM and it’s super important that you do finish this course
by that deadline because it can affect your enrollment appointment yeah so the
next question is is it bad that I’m still undeclared what if I want to
change my major so it’s totally not bad that you’re undeclared coming into
college it’s actually really good that you are able to experience so many
different things while you’re an undeclared major you’re able to explore
different possibilities that you enjoy you can talk to your college advisor and
they can see where your interests lie and where they can direct you
to a good major for you or something that interests you you’re able to take a
bunch of GEs that kind of piqued your interest as well if you want to do it on
your own in terms of changing your major that’s pretty simple as well everyone
coming in right now is going to be a proposed major which means it’s not set
yet it’s different from declared so if you’re a proposed major it’s really easy
to just change your major to change your proposed major you can go to
different pathways talk to your college advisor again and they’ll help you
making that transition easy so next question is where can I study on campus
so there are actually several places to study on campus your answers will just
vary on based on who you’re asking personally I love studying in McHenry
library I love studying there because so many people are on task
and they’re being super studious so it encourages me to want to be serious
as well I’m not sure if you all want to share any of your favorite study spots
yeah for me I love to study at the Cowell computer lab just because it’s
open 24 hours and it’s really helpful when it’s 3:00 in the morning and I have
to do an essay I just go to the computer lab and crank it out yeah I think I’m
the opposite of may I use McHenry more to sleep and take some naps
throughout my day so I think I found myself at Stevenson a lot in the
academic building there’s a second floor they have outside benches you can actually
sit on and it overlooks the ocean and not a lot of people go up there so I
I found myself there a lot just you know reading some stuff maybe
call my mom and also reading some sociology or something and other than
McHenry which I really like to study as well
College 9 and 10 has a recreation lounge and that’s one of my second places to
study they have tables and chairs couches for you to study there it’s also
just a nice place to chill and relax but I was there a lot just because a lot of
my friends were from college 9 and 10 so we chill over there and study do our
studies so you wanna go on to the next question
yeah yeah so the next question is how can i balance school
work extracurricular activities and a social life during my first year so I
think if you were to have met me as a student during my third or fourth year
and looked at my Google Calendar you would have probably thought it was a
little wack so I was having about three and a half four jobs at a time working
maybe like 30 hours while also being a full-time student and I only got there
because during my freshman year I was working maybe six hours a week during my
fall quarter just to see if I could and how working sort of worked into my
daily life with going to college for the first time and once I knew that I could
start working I just added on every quarter by quarter so I ended up you
know graduating with like a whole bunch of jobs and a whole bunch of experience
um yeah so Google Calendar for sure and then just like knowing your priorities
and where you want to maybe end up your senior year cool
yeah the next question how do you know what kind of classes you need to take as
a freshman like do we need math English and what about prerequisites for our
intended majors so all this information can be found in the getting started in
your major guides that you can access through course two of slug orientation
for as far as math it really just depends on what major you’re doing and
then for English everybody has to take English that’s a university
requirement all of the colleges have different core classes or English
classes as far as prerequisites for our intended majors again that can be found
in the getting started in your major guides and then also when you’re doing
when you’re searching for your classes on the class search of under the my UCSC
portal it’ll show you like when you click on a class it’ll show you what the
prerequisites are to take that class and piggybacking off of that question is
what does the core course teach core course meaning like Oakes one
Crown one Kresge one those classes and so the basics of what the core class is
teaching you is reading analysis and basically like understanding
what the text is the courses also are based off of your theme for your
colleges so for like me for Kresge the theme was power and representation and
so we read a bunch of pieces about power and representation and how different forms
of language and words can kind of reflect that meaning that the author is
trying to reflect and now on to the next question which is how do I prepare for a
research program are there any stem research programs
about AI if not how can a student make one so there are several research programs here
at UCSC given that so many undergraduates are interested in research we do offer
many opportunities do you want to go on yeah totally so each department website
will have a list of the faculty or the professors under that department and
with or like along with their names they also describe they have like a
little bio describing what they do like what kind of research that they’re into
one thing about all of the professors here is that they’re required to do
research so there they all are doing research and along with the bio they
also attach their email so if you see a professor whose research you might be
interested in you can email them and have a chat with them about it and then
if it might not be the exact kind of research that you’re looking for they
can help redirect you to different opportunities next question is can you
explain work study do you make a certain amount per year or are you
guaranteed a job and are you able to make more money than what is offered for
your work-study okay the the basics that I know about
work-study is that you have to apply for it through your financial aid and if you
are granted it then it’s basically there’s a whole different list of jobs
that you can apply for through the ER system which is the employee request
system I don’t have too much info about it yeah so um elaborating more on the work
study is that there is a max amount of money so when you get your financial aid
package it would tell you how much money is given to you through your work study
and so you cannot work past that because it would hinder on your financial aid and
so yeah and I think a lot of jobs for the most part do offer a work-study position and a non work-study position so you might be working with folks like I know for myself when I was
an intramural sports official we had both people who were workstudy and non work
study we’re working the same job it’s just which one you apply to through the
ER system alright so the next question is what amenities do the dorms have as
far as communal area microwave do we get sinks somewhere to wash the water
bottles um so I know myself when I lived at Merrill during my freshman
year I mean I just use the sink in the bathroom down our hall to like wash my
water bottles and stuff there at least for my experience we didn’t like
we brought our own microwaves and fridges to our dorm room so that wasn’t like
a provided thing for you um and do you have sinks um you will have sinks in
your bathroom which is like a communal space that you’re sharing with all your
other um residential Hall floor mates on your floor to add on to that if
you’re living in any of the apartments whether you’re Kresge affiliate or later
on you decide to apply for an apartment those apartments are furnished with two
couches there’s a bathroom a sink and a kitchen so you have a refrigerator and
those kinds of things that would be there and moving on to the next question
actually a little bit piggybacking off that one is there a microwave / fridge
combo for rent or are those items we would need to buy in the dorms so I
believe the bookstore does rent microwave and fridge combos I don’t know
the exact price but they do do it in terms of needing to buy it if you really
don’t want to rent it and you want to keep it like maybe you want to have it
for next year or you want to keep it if you decide to move off campus one day
you can also buy those items and they’re also sold at the bookstore so onto the
next question is can I take food out of the dining
hall and what kind of food do they offer so we do offer ways to take food out of the dining
hall if you buy an eco box they will be heavily advertised once you go into an
actual dining hall so you won’t miss it there the Eco boxes are about $10 for
the whole year and some really nice things for them that way you can take
food out of the dining hall it’s heavily discouraged to try sneak any food
outside outside the Eco box just because it can be a violation of health and as
for the food that they offer there are several options at any of the dining
halls being a UCSU student you have access to any other dining halls and
there’s five dining halls throughout the whole College one per sister College and
they do offer vegetarian options and vegan options myself I’m pescetarian so
you also offer fish sometimes so I feel it’s very accommodating next question is
how easy is it to change majors so for all of the first years you’re coming in
proposed you’re not officially in a major yet so because of that it is
pretty easy to change your majors all you have to do is you fill out like this
quick little form to change your proposed major yeah I guess but for
transfer students I believe the process would be a little bit more difficult
since you have been accepted into that major you’re not proposed so I think for
that you would just have to talk to your major advisor and see how to go about
changing your major yeah for to clarify the actual changing of declared majors
you do have to need do an application form that would petition as to why you
would like to change your majors you would also need sign-off from your
college advisor major and both of the major advisors the one that you’re
currently in and the one that you decide that you want to switch into all right
so the next question is how can I make sure that I graduate in four years is it
hard so I graduated with two different majors
as I said before both sociology and art and I knew the first quarter that I
definitely wanted to be sociology but I didn’t know I wanted to be art yet until
maybe like winter quarter so I first quarter I took two major classes that
would be for both soc and art and I just sat down with my college advisor and it
was like I want to graduate in four years like is it possible and we
basically mapped out all four years and I actually cuz I came in with some AP
credit so I had a little bit of wiggle room during my senior year to take some
extra fun classes so it definitely is possible to graduate in four years and
there’s a couple programs I think maybe like 12 or 15 that you can actually
graduate in three yeah all that information is like through the major
websites but you can definitely graduate in four awesome and so for the next
question is there any extra assistance to help pay for on-campus housing so as
far as I know for me personally I’ve had financial aid that has been able to cover for on-campus housing
as part of some university grants loans and Cal Grant things like that but other
assistances I’m not too sure does anyone else the only that comes to
mind is slug support that’s definitely like you know if you’re somebody who is
getting financial aid you’ll probably be like sort of pushed towards talking to
slug support if you do run into any extra burden that might make you know
paying for campus housing a little bit more difficult and on to the next
question is the film and digital media major more theory-based
or more production-based as a film and digital media major I can definitely
tell you I feel it’s definitely a balance when you first start off you
will have more theory based classes but that’s more to the latest or a
foundation and be able to know the route of film itself and then later on you
will have the option of choosing the production of applying for the
production pathway and for the production pathway you have more hands
on experience with cameras and sets and all those those things but if you are
more interested in theory we do offer a critical analysis pathway which you can
learn more about the theory of film next question does UCSC have a dance team or
Orchestra yes there’s definitely tons of dance teams on campus you can go to the
soar website I know that’s an acronym I’m not sure what it stands for but but
you just type UCSC soar it’ll take you to all the clubs that we have
on campus and a lot of those will be the dance teams you’ll find tons of those
and then an orchestra we definitely do have a university Orchestra that I
believe you have to audition for yeah that you can the next question I think
it’s for May oh were you in any dance clubs no I’m so sorry I read it as
like May as in the proposition but no I personally wasn’t on any dance clubs but if
you’re interested in dance clubs there is an event that will happen during
Welcome Week called cornucopia cornucopia is basically a club festival
where all the club’s try to present themselves there will be performances
there by different dance clubs and such so be sure to find more information
about that and check it out I guess to clarify what cornucopia like why it’s called
cornucopia cuz I think a lot of us think it’s like the Thanksgiving feast
basket thing so cornucopia if you didn’t know it’s actually the term for a
gathering of slugs like a gathering of banana slugs so because this event is
where we have the most amount of UC Santa Cruz students in one place at one
time and it’s now called cornucopia cuz it’s the largest gathering of us slugs
cuz we’re banana slugs and you’re banana slugs now um so yeah that’s
some like history on why that’s the name because it’s it’s a funny funny name
okay so the next question is it mandatory to take a math course so
there is a general education course tagged MF which is your like your
mathematical class and you have to take but I do know there are some classes
that do satisfy the MF GE that are not per se like algebra or geometry and I
can’t think of them off top of my head but they are offered if you’re worried
about taking like a college college math course so the next question is do we
have an option to speak with a counselor before to know which classes to enroll
in for this fall semester so yes you do so we’re gonna be having virtual
advising days starting July 22nd and that’ll run till August 2nd depending on
when your enrollment is gonna be so you can sign up for those come in and there
will be the advisors there to help you out the next question is how and when
can you switch your major so you can switch your major um as soon as you come
into UCSC if you’d like as I mentioned before right now you are only
a proposed major so if you like if you have more interest in switching your
major I would definitely advise to reach out to the advisor of the major that
you’re interested in switching in next question is how hard are the are the
business classes that you take me I am just now transitioning to business
management economics so I’m just taking the introductory economics classes you
won’t get so much into like the business-y classes until later on but for well it
really just depends on like your load like how much you’re taking on other
like other than class like if you have a job or stuff like that like all the
classes are definitely manageable and there’s lots of support provided if if
you need the extra help we have like MSI and small group tutoring MSI stands
for modified supplemental instruction yeah so just like different
tutoring avenues that you can take if you’re having trouble but for the most
part in my experience I’ve found that they’re pretty manageable so next
question I’m excited to answer are there any competitive sports at UC Santa Cruz so I
think I’ve said in my intro I worked for the competitive sports office actually
for all four years that I was an undergrad I was first like a sports
official then I began a supervisor and then my senior year I was supervising both
intramural sports and competitive sports and we ranged between anywhere
from 36 competitive sports clubs to about 42 um I know we ended spring this
past spring quarter with about 37 and half of them are like the recreational
ones ones that don’t compete in like annual competitions and the other half
are the competitive ones that do go to competitive tournaments throughout the
year and we have like equestrian oh my gosh badminton we have soccer we have a
whole bunch I’m they’re all in the athletics and Recreation competitive
sports website if you do think about wanting to join any of those and all of
those sports clubs will actually be tabling at the Cornucopia event it’s the
Tuesday of welcome week so if you’re thinking about joining or maybe you want
to try out for the team there’s an opportunity to do that at the beginning
of Fall Quarter awesome and I guess piggyback well I’m getting all the
piggyback questions right now but yeah do we have PE classes at UCSC what about
PE classes that are not so professional but are enough to exercise so yeah
absolutely there are a lot of different physical education courses that we offer
every quarter and they are zero unit classes so they’re really are just for
recreation if you don’t want to take any of those classes you can just go over to
our athletic and recreation center and work out there we have a lot of the
exercise machines that you would normally find in a gym and it’s pretty
manageable and it’s nice yes and on to the next question is what is the distance
from the campus to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk so the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk
walk is actually not too far from us it’s only one bus ride away with your
UCSC slug card you would be able to go on to any bus within Santa Cruz County
and so using your bus card you can take on a bus all the way down to the beach
boardwalk do y’all know what bus specifically 19 yeah yeah so using the
19 you can go directly to the beach boardwalk or if you like you can just
take a bus to downtown and then the beach boardwalk is walking distance
from downtown as well cool next question are there Greek
organizations at UCSC the answer is yes all of our Greek organizations or Greek
life is all off campus and none of our organizations are actually housed on
campus there they have they hold events they’ll be at the cornucopia like we
mentioned earlier for the clubs and organizations and also there usually you
can find them stationed right outside the bookstore especially at the
beginning of each quarter kind of um trying to recruit members um we have
let’s see we have a lot a lot of different kinds for we have professional
Greek organizations and then also social organizations um
yeah they’ll also be at the cornucopia the club event that we mentioned before
so if you want to check those out you can go to cornucopia and see the Greek
organizations for yourself the next question is are there study abroad
programs available at UC Santa Cruz so absolutely there’s an entire office
dedicated to education abroad um there will be informational sessions during
the Welcome Week so if you as a first year are like oh I already know I want
to study abroad you actually have a chance to go and
listen to some presentations about it they are manageable to fit in through
like your time here at UC Santa Cruz I mean you can even study abroad in the
summer so that is something that like you don’t wanna because I know for
myself I wasn’t gonna take a quarter off at school to like miss work so I there
is definitely a lot of options with flexibility for what type of programs
that are offered through Santa Cruz yeah and to go off of the that I’m actually
planning on studying abroad I’m taking a fifth year to do that you don’t have to
like amber said you can absolutely fit it into your four-year plan but for
me I’m interested in just taking that extra time to go study abroad learn
about the culture of where I’m thinking about going and yeah so the the Study
Abroad Office is really nice they’re so helpful they have a lot of resources to
get you acclimated to where you want to go and help you plan out all that stuff
and so the next question is can you work as a tutor on campus and is that part of
work-study you can you can work as a tutor if you would like to tutor for
specific class you can always talk to a professor that you’ve already had and
you can see if they’re looking for any new tutors usually they are and you can
work for them through that as far as it being a work-study I’m not sure if it is
one but there’s definitely it can be part of non work-study and it’s a
position that we offer and now on to the next one is can you graduate in less
than four years you actually can graduate in less than four years it’s
totally possible one of the things I’m very familiar with is the 3-year pathway
which is offered by several majors here and I specifically cannot tell you
which majors but both Sociology and Art are both in the three year pathways film also is in three year pathway as well and so it’s totally doable especially if you have
transfer credits from previous years but um even if you don’t it’s totally doable next question is it hard to join a sport
team I wouldn’t say it’s very hard at all it depends on the level of sport
that you want to join we have three different levels we have like the
NCAA division 3 which would be the most competitive the hardest to join
and then we have like our competitive sports clubs and then our non
competitive sports clubs and then we also have intramural sports which are
basically you can just you just join or create yeah and you just
compete with other teams on campus I’m looking at amber because she works with Athletics and Recreation but I mean intramural sports it’s like a great way to
get involved in campus life especially in your first quarter because the
commitment is like an hour a week so you’re not practicing outside of that
game you’re not you know you don’t have to meet up with your team at all um it’s only
20 bucks a quarter too to play an entire season and if like your team does win
an intramural sports championship you get a free pizza to Woodstock’s
and a free t-shirt so that’s some good incentive to just meet new people
maybe on your floor I know teams have like joined cuz like they’re all from
like Stevenson four or five you know so they all go try to meet new people and
have a good time play some sports yeah the next question is how do Santa
Cruz students travel to the airport so there are a lot of there are a lot of
ways the first one being Zimride which is a UC Santa Cruz
sanctioned like rideshare program that you can actually like join through
Facebook and people will post when they’re leaving maybe like you are
either offering a ride or you want to get a ride you can put that
information there and we also have the 17 expressway bus which is $7 to take
and it will take you um up to San Jose and then you actually have to get on like
another shuttle to the Diridon station and then to the airport but it’s
definitely a doable thing to do what are some other ways so the next question is
what is Welcome Week is it required so Welcome Week highly recommended that
you go it’s required but yeah we recommend that you do attend Welcome
Week just because that’s a lot of getting started with college meeting the
people that are going to be in your dorm and your building your residential
assistant learning about Santa Cruz about the campus so I would say Welcome
Week is something you really should go to and now on to the next question is
what are the other activities that students can get involved on campus so there are so many
activities that you can get involved with there are clubs there are programs
there are offices student government there’s so much they can get involved in uh
me I myself I’m involved in student government and I’m also involved with
the Programs office I don’t know if you all want to share what you all are involved with here yeah I mean So May and I we’re in student government together up at Merrill and we also worked for the same Programs Office up at Merrill and then besides that I mean I was mentioning I was
involved in University Relations the orientation office the competitive
sports office and then NIRSA which is not part of the University it’s actually like a
National Organization for leadership in like recreational sports collegiate
recreational sports that’s also another group that I was a part of through one
of my jobs at the recreation center for me I’ve been involved with Circle K
like I said for four years it’s had a really big impact on my life working
with the community different communities all around California I’ve also
been involved with the orientation program for two years I’ve worked at the Crown
Merrill dining hall for a little bit and I’ve also started working for the
admissions office as a tour guide in training also just like to add on to
activities that aren’t part of like clubs or organizations or things like
that there are just programs like normal activities that your like RAs will put
on or your RAs are your residential assistants or like the college would put
on so you can you’ll get emails from your college advisor or sometimes your
RA sends you emails too with what’s going on around campus so yeah yeah you’ll get as
someone who works for programs office you definitely will see banners
around so just keep your eye out for banners and flyers just cuz there’s so
many like great programs that you just don’t want miss out on next question is
how is on campus life on the weekends I think on campus life is pretty fun
there’s always so like we were mentioning earlier there’s always events
going on that um just like different clubs organizations and just RAs
anybody will put on and then you’ll get like that weekly digest or monthly
digest with what’s going on so you can join in on those activities if you’d
like it’s also a great opportunity to go hiking you know like you’re not in class and you want to go explore there’s a lot of great hiking trails on campus for sure definitely a great time to go to the
beach I love going to the beach when the weather’s nice there’s actually like a
dog beach over on west cliff and since like dogs aren’t permitted on campus
unless they’re service animals then like that’s a great opportunity to go yeah
and if you don’t want to go off campus you can just head over to our athletics
and recreation field it’s like a nice place just to relax take in some air and
have a good time so next question is how do I find out about clubs and I think
we’ve mentioned this a couple times but cornucopia so it’s the Tuesday oh my gosh the Tuesday of welcome week and they’ll actually close all the dining halls during
that time period I think it’s like maybe three to six so you will get dinner at
cornucopia so it’s like a little incentive to go and try to find out some
information about clubs yeah Tuesday welcome week cornucopia there’s
gonna be a bunch of advertising for that for sure yeah so the next version is
where can I use my flexi dollars and flexi’s actually can be accepted are
accepted all over campus I believe at any of the dining halls any of the
on-campus cafes any of the like little Express store that we have in the quarry
Plaza and those will like relate to real-world dollars you can also use them
at CVS if you have a chance to get down to CVS you can also use them at
Woodstock’s and I believe there’s one more place but
I don’t remember I’ve heard rumors about Pizza My Heart I think you can yes you can yes yeah you can’t so yeah anywhere
that says like accepts flexi’s on the register they will accept your flexi
dollars so unfortunately we are running out of time so we’re gonna go on to our
very last question of tonight which is what advice can you give us as we start
our first year so personally my first year i procrastinated a lot so I would
definitely try to avoid procrastination at all costs try to stay on top of
everything my best way with that is I’m a big fan of Google Calendar just
because that way I could set all my deadlines all my schedules and I could
just feel like I’m on top of everything yeah I think for me my first year I came
in to UCSC already having friends from high school that were also UCSC students
so I didn’t get out and explore what everything that the campus had to offer
as much as I wish I could have so but like I don’t I wouldn’t say I regret it
because like everything at your own time like there’s no pressure to join clubs
and like doing sports teams and a full load of classes and have a job
and all that like your first year there’s no pressure at all
so I don’t know I did I guess just for me like I started to explore in this
past year and if I had any advice to give I would just say to start exploring
if you can or able to sooner because it definitely makes your college experience
a lot better for me I would say don’t forget about your family if you’re
feeling a little homesick make sure to call them they’re literally just a call
away they’re worried about you as much as you may be worried about yourself and
them so definitely give them a call hang out with them tell them to come down to
Santa Cruz show them what you’ve learned about Santa Cruz because they don’t know
probably as much as you do so yeah definitely keep in contact with your
family is something I would say is a good piece of advice again I think my
advice would maybe be like learn how to say yes and learn how to say no I know
for myself I was like I’m gonna say yes to all these opportunities I’m gonna get
from my professors for my work and that panned out really well but also learning
how to say no to some of those opportunities you don’t want to like
over spread spread yourself too thin especially in your first year your first
