REMEMBER TO HAVE A MEANINGFUL CONVERSATION WITH THE FRESHMEN.  The students want to feel welcomed.  Be open to having a conversation with strangers.  They are interested, they just might not seem like they are.  Be the leader that you are and that you are capable of being!  You are IN COLLEGE, they WANT to be here and be just like YOU!!
