What advice would you give to young Phis?

Always be mindful of new ideas and perspectives. During your undergraduate career, you’ll come in contact with hundreds – or even thousands – of new people in your chapter, classes, and social life. Each of these individuals will have a unique set of experiences, a life story, that differs from your own, and each of these individuals have the potential to impact your life in ways that you’d never expect. Surround yourself with those that are different than you. Learn from your peers – especially outside the classroom setting – even if you don’t agree with what others have to say. Most importantly, be respectful of everyone and keep an open mind! If you expand your horizons and love to learn, you can’t lose!
