"Go out there and make a diverse group of friends. They’re your support system. Just make conversation with someone you didn't know yesterday because you don't know where that relationship is going to lead you. "

"Don't be scared. Put yourself out there. You're not going to learn from being quiet. How are you going to grow without failing? Don't be afraid to explore other disciplines at Tyler either. And, yeah, try to get to know people, too."
