Know your strengths and needs and communicate them. Everyone has a right to equal access. If issues arrise, reach out ASAP.
4. Use your Resources
There are so many resources on campus to help you succeed. Not sure where to turn? Ask!
5. Take Care of Yourself
Sleep. Eat well. Exercis regularly. Talk to a friend or mentor. Go for a walk. Find ways to unplug and relax.
