Hello everyone, my name is Tiffany and I am a senior from central Pennsylvania. As a first-generation college student, I was pretty clueless as an incoming freshman and found support from my learning assistant at the time. I enjoy helping others and aim to be supportive to you as my LA had been to me. Speaking from experience, all questions are valid questions. I am here to help you transition into this new environment whether you just want to talk, want some advice, or have questions.
