Welcome to the second installment in Emma’s Guide for Incoming Freshmen. Now that I’ve given you guys some pointers on your living space, let’s move on to what will be happening in that living space a good portion of the time: studying and homework. I made it through my first year with only a few breakdowns and maybe one all-nighter. Academics at Ave are challenging, but definitely worth it. I am also in the Honors Program, which offers extra enrichment as well as additional challenges. I did well grade-wise, but it did take quite a bit of effort.
