Bo’s best Advice

“Always remain pawsitive”

Bo the Bulldog

6 Tips for Students

  1. Set yourself up for success!
  2. Get involved—Do what you love and love what you do, and find others who enjoy those things, or try something new! I’m going to give this whole mascot thing a try, what are you going to try this year?
  3. Get to know new people—I am going to be the new kid on campus this year, too! So say hi if you see me (and scratch my ears)
  4. Hydration is key—never leave home without a refillable water bottle (or water bowl) and refill at campus water bottle fill up stations
  5. Keep your fridge stocked with snacks—maybe it’s just me, but I always like a good snack to keep me motivated and focused
  6. GWU is here for you—GWU has many resources to help you succeed in class and in life. Whether you need writing a resume or need to visit a counselor, there are caring people everywhere you look who want you to reach your goals!
