"Interacting with my seniors and classmates is the best thing you can do. Our program offers this amazing service where seniors provide tutoring. Whenever I come across any difficult topic in my course, I reach out to my seniors for help. In addition, we also plan get-togethers where we spend time with each other and have fun.
