  As a freshman, the sense of being lost in a big new world was exciting, but at the same time I treasured every bit of advice I could get。 Now that I‘m a few years older, I thought I’d share some thoughts。 More importantly, I went around and asked some of the most accomplished Penn students for what recommendations they‘d give to freshmen。

  作为大学新生,在大的新世界里迷失的感觉很刺激,但同时我也珍视得到的每一点建议。既然我年长几岁,就想分享一些我的想法。更重要的是,我四处找了一些学业有成的宾夕法尼亚大学学生,让他们给新生提出了一些建议。

  1。 College is about the people you meet。 Value them above all else。

  上大学就是跟人交往,要把他们看得比别的都重要。

  6。 You have two ears and one mouth, and that design happens to be intelligent。

  你有两只耳朵一张嘴,这个设计很明智。

  7。 Try to learn very different things。 Some of the most confident and successful graduates are skilled in two seemingly polar subjects, like computer science and political science。

  努力学习非常难的东西,一些最自信、最成功的毕业生都擅长选两门对立学科,比如计算机和政治学。

  如果你面临一个选择,是该把自己锁起来备考还是该做些更有意义、更难忘的事,那么你还是选择有意义的事吧。

  15。 Don‘t wait till senior year to do those things you want to do or become who you want to be。
