Strategies for success from some of our students:
“The best part of my ETSU experience so far is the people. If I reach out, my advisors have always been extremely attentive, patient, and invested in me. Don’t be consumed with getting in and out so quickly. Take the time to connect with peers & professors.” - Gabi WiseCarver
"I have had the opportunity to go to ETSU with childhood friends as well as meet new people along the way. I'm not from the Johnson City area, so it's been super fun experiencing a new place and making it my home!
"Most 3rd & 4th year students don't meet with their advisors, but I love meeting with my advisors. They really help me stay on track and give me motivation to achieve my goals.
"Work hard, take care of yourself, and enjoy this time! It really does fly by..."
- Anna Latham
"The best part of ETSU has been the environment that surrounds campus. There are endless opportunities and gracious leaders. I am grateful to have spent the last 4 years here. My greatest challenge was feeling comfortable reaching out to my professors and asking for help. This ultimately caused me not to succeed and it has set me back. Advisement at ETSU has been helpful and any advisor I have had has figured out what is best for me. They have always been willing to be challenged by my ideas and help me through the process. Study hard, don’t be intimidated, stay positive, ASK FOR HELP!” - Maleah Miller
"I have always had a positive experience with advising. My former advisor always had a positive attitude when answering my MANY questions. She was also there if I ever needed a shoulder to cry on.
"Go outside your comfort zone... try things you've never had the opportunity to try."
- Macy Brown
"To me the best part of ETSU is the friendships that I have made along the way. Switching from being pre-med to pre-PA has been really difficult, but the advisors here have helped me every step of the way. They are always so helpful and if they don’t know an answer to your question they will find it. They make the transition from high school to college as smooth as possible." - Robert Jauregui
“The advisors here are very helpful and really take the time to make sure you are on track.” – Luke Winegar
