"You'll learn that above everything else, people matter. Invest in your relationships. Being "busy" is not an excuse, and you’ll never have time, but you’ll make time. Follow up with friends you say hi to in passing and actually grab that lunch or coffee that you've mentioned for years! Text people to ask about their day. Or better yet, call them. Learn about the stories of your peers. Turn acquaintances into friends. Befriend people who aren't like you; they’ll challenge you to think about the world a different way. Keep in touch with people from home; they know who you are, where you came from, and stuck by your side in your weird teenage years. Say thank you often—to your parents, your roommates, your professors, and anyone who has gone out of their way to make your day just a little brighter. You’ll make theirs brighter too."
