  1. Participation in this process helped me to put language to some of the things that I have been thinking as I am nearing completing of this program. I constantly ask myself if I have availed myself sufficiently of this experience? Have I read the material beyond that of only an academic exercise? Have I found ways in which the theory can be immediately put to use and experimentation? Have I reached out and helped others to succeed to the degree that others have reached in to help me succeed?

    I think the greatest counsel that I would give myself is to network beyond those at an arm’s length. Relationships are a crucial component of success.

  2. “Don’t stress!” This is a simple piece of advice that I gave myself two years ago, when I was just about to start the master’s program. I wish I would have listened to myself more closely! While I tried not to become too stressed over balancing school, a full-time job, commuting, and everything else in life, it was hard not to feel overwhelmed at times, and I did not always keep my own advice in mind. However, time has flown by and here I am preparing for graduation. I knew that I would get through this program no matter what, so there was no need for me to be so stressed…I have learned you should take your own advice – you probably won’t regret it!
