Talk about your Hillcrest experience and give words of wisdom to the underclassmen: At Hillcrest I was able to create friendships with a lot of really awesome people. I also had a lot of opportunities to participate in things I otherwise would not have. My advice to underclassmen is to put your relationships first, and work hard because (from my experience) it will payoff.
