What is your favorite Triton sport? I am a HUGE golf fan, but I'd have to say our basketball games are exciting to watch!

Where is your favorite spot on campus? I like the Barnett Memorial Plaza near the SSB and Express Scripts buildings.  It is a quiet, serene place.

What advice do you have for entering Freshmen? College is a very exciting time, but it can also be a rough transition. Don't go it alone. Make connections on campus with faculty, other students, student groups - you name it! Just get plugged in and enjoy yourself!
