Advice from Vandal Graduates

Mathematics

Try and get to know your professors as much as you can. Let them know that you are here to learn and show them how much work you put into the class. Don't be afraid to ask them questions either. Most importantly, have fun learning. You will understand each lesson better if you enjoy going to the class.
