Andres Mejia Student of the Week

How does your major fit into your life’s plan? 
At this time I am undeclared, but interested in political science. 
Getting a degree in political science will enable me to go back to my
hometown and become state representative to make changes in my community.                             

Tell us something you’re involved in here at UNH, and how
it has contributed to your
personal development.
I am involved in Black Student Union, or BSU which helps me stay in touch
with people and remember where I came from, and still succeed in college. 

What lessons have you learned from other students? 
Lessons I have learned from other students is that I need study more than
the day before an exam.  I treat college like a 9 to 5 job so I can stay focused
and avoid procrastination. 

What is your favorite spot on campus and why?
My favorite spot on campus is the Connect Office because you can talk about what you want and everyone respects one another.

What has been your greatest challenge? 
My greatest challenge is writing papers.  Most papers have to be a specific length of paragraphs and pages; I tend to keep my points and thoughts simple without much detail and explanation.

What advice would you give to incoming students? 
I would tell incoming students to make sure they use their resources and get to know as many people as possible.  Two resources I have used regularly are the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, and Dimond Library.

What is one thing at UNH that no student should miss? 
One thing at UNH that no student should miss is going to your professor’s office hours.  This is your chance to connect with faculty and allow the professor to become familiar with you.
