Advice for new Hornets:

Embrace the college experience! It is such an amazing and unique time that we too often take for granted so don’t let it pass you by! Say yes to opportunities, events, and activities. Go to athletic events, UAC events, theater productions, art shows, student organization events, Nitty Gritty runs, music ensembles, and concerts. Hang out with your friends on campus, adventure through Emporia, STUDY! Get involved on campus! I can promise you two things: these college years will fly by way too fast and they can be some of the very best years if you allow them to be.
