Ally Ott 

What's a piece of advice you would give to an incoming freshman? 

 "Take advantage of all the opportunities that are presented to you. Go on the educational trips. Go to the leadership development nights. Go to social events with your peers. You are only in college once, and these opportunities will not only set you apart in the future, but they will also help you grow personally and professionally."
- Ally Ott, AAE Senior, Class of 2023
