Advice for new students? 
In essence, "work hard" serves as a foundational principle that underscores the dedication, effort, and mindset needed for your academic and personal journey. Embrace the opportunities to learn, grow, and make the most of your time as a student. Your hard work will not only lead to academic achievements but will also shape your character, resilience, and preparedness for the future challenges that lie ahead and most importantly whenever you feel sad always remember the happiness can be found in the darkest of times only if one remembers to turn on the light.
