  1. Great expose Sloan! We’ve been taught that when challenges arise, we must “rise up” and “push harder”; yet so much of higher education is a mental game and that strategy doesn’t always work. The ability to change your mindset shows how you are growing and learning already! I think you’ll be well on your way to a great year. Best of luck!
