If you are here on campus right now taking your first Fall 2015 classes, then you probably weren’t in Smith Hall last may when Convocation speaker and alumnus, Matt Garrison, explained to the Spring 2015 graduates how to ride a BA from the English department to success. Much of his advice applies to success during college as well as after:
Welcome to campus!
