During the first year of college, advice can be priceless: don't take so-and-so for Sociology 101,the lot attendant on corner "x" will take baked goods and sandwiches in exchange for free parking, don't ever lock your bike here, take a shower.
Advice to Sink in Slowly is a little more visual. The program, first piloted in 2006, is an ongoing poster series of advice drawn and designed by graduates for incoming first year students. And while the pieces and words are subjective, the program's coordinators and poster designers hope that each poster has the chance to make an impact, even if it takes a while to settle.
