Encourage and support your fellow students. No one here is looking for your criticism, cynicism, advice, or judgment. (We can get those things on the rest of the Internet).
Some people will request to be called/referred to by certain pronouns( e.g. she/her, he/him, or they/them) that align with how they self identify. If you're unsure how to refer to that person it’s best practice to ask what pronouns they use, or you can default to using they/them.

Your stories and experiences may be exactly what another student needs to hear today to solve a problem or seize an opportunity.
We’re here to push each other forward and lift each other up. Find ways to help each other think bigger, reframe challenges, and stay curious.
Don’t spam, promote, or troll. It’s not a place to spam, promote, or bully anyone else.
