tutor counselor

June - August 2019 • Plattsburgh, NY

What I liked

I loved the experience of living on campus during the summer, tutoring incoming EOP freshmen, and making memories!

What I wish was different

I wished that I had done EOP Summer as a freshman, but instead I was a transfer student accepted into EOP. I had a lot of fun being involved in the tutoring and the counseling, but I'm sure it would have been even more rewarding if I had experienced it first and then gave back.

Advice

Get involved in everything! Hikes, pool parties, walks around campus. It is absolutely beautiful in the summer
