“I’ve been thinking about [my speech] since my sophomore year,” Boeckman said, while both admitted to not beginning their writing yet.

Bailey and Boeckman shared their advice for underclassmen in regards to academics and extra-curricular activities. Bailey said, “Sleep is very important. Make sure you have enough time for yourself.”

“It is okay to not give your all with everything.” Boeckman said. “In the end, academics aren’t everything,” Bailey said. “Just do your best and it will work out in the end.”
