Advice to incoming/current students: 

Get involved with Hydrophiles as soon as you can! It is a really great community of students who love thinking about (and playing in) water resources and with whom you might not otherwise connect. Also, reach out to organizations/agencies out in the community (e.g. Marys River Watershed Group, Oregon Water Resources Department, etc). You never know when they might be looking for help on a project, and getting involved provides valuable learning opportunities about water issues on the ground.
