Be an Active Member of UAlbany’s Inclusive Community
The past four years at the University at Albany have been nothing short of life changing. Each year, I have grown academically, socially, and mentally.
As a freshman, I was thrust out of my comfort zone, which was quite an adjustment. Growing up in Long Island, I had the same group of friends since 1st grade. I had to actively force myself to engage with my classmates from various backgrounds and to not just rely on my stable friend group back home. I was also challenged by the new demands of time management – balancing my free time with my course load.
