  • Victoria Johnson

    Management Junior from Ashburn, Virginia

    "My number one piece of advice I have for students is to get your work done before you do anything else. During your college years, there will be A LOT of things that will compete for your time. Part of the whole 'college experience' is having a social life and enjoying your time; however, if you don’t get your priorities in check, you won’t be in college long enough to enjoy the social aspect of it."

Always walk confident and have a smile on your face as people will begin to realize you and want to surround themselves with you."

    "Don’t be afraid. Make friends, take risks, try new things, and enjoy college. West Virginia University gives students numerous opportunities to serve and grow into the individuals they want to be. All it takes is a chance. A chance to stand out and network with people whether that’s with other students, faculty, or employers. WVU may be considered a party school but you’ll find your group and click with them. Join student organizations, sororities/fraternities, clubs, or a sports team. I guarantee you won’t regret it because these years will be the best years of your life before the real world begins. So take a step forward into your future and make the best out of being a Mountaineer!"
