Tips for all admitted students:

  • If you’re still an undecided major, check out the different majors and read more about them. Don’t worry, you don’t have to declare until you reach 60 credits, but it’s useful to start thinking about your academic and career interests early.
  • Start building your business wardrobe! A suit is a necessity. Choose a matching suit in neutral colors (black, navy, gray).
  • Brush up your resume.
