Ayala believes it is important for students to become involved on campus and take advantage of university resources. She stated, “Join a club or organizations, enroll in classes that might be outside of your comfort zone, volunteer somewhere new, take advantage of all networking events, study abroad, try a new sport, etc.” She went on to say, “Ask for help when you need it, take advantage of professor’s office hours, meet with your advisor, use the library and lean on your classmates for support.”
