Words of Wisdom for Students

You have fabulous opportunities ahead of you. There are many choices that you will have to make as you plan for college.

  1. Remember to focus on what is the BEST for YOU in the long run, instead of what feels easy, or right in the moment. Have fun, and most importantly learn and grow so you can realize those dreams.
  2. Do not procrastinate. Get your work done, study for that test, and then you can enjoy your time without concern.
  3. Start projects and homework early so that if you need help you have time to seek out support. This action will definitely help to reduce your stress level.
  4. Choose your friends wisely. Seek out friends who are nice, responsible and who will be there for you when you need someone. Also, seek out friends who will be willing to be part of a study group with you, should you need one.
  5. Get involved in extra-curricular activities, which will support you in meeting new friends and experiencing new things.
  6. Before you graduate high school, take one at least one leadership role, either in a club or sport. Make sure to highlight your leadership experience on your college resume.
  7. Volunteer somewhere in your community. Keep track of the number of hours you have volunteered throughout high school and highlight that information on your resume.
  8. When something goes wrong or there is a problem, never be afraid to discuss it with an adult. Small problems tend to grow into BIG problems unless we work at resolving them.
  9. Get enough sleep, eat healthy meals and exercise multiple times per week. It helps your body and your mind to work efficiently.
  10. Stay safe. Be aware of your surroundings especially at night. Don’t walk alone in areas that are unpopulated.
  11. College is different than high school. It is your responsibility to manage your life. Oftentimes, you will have a class or two where only two grades, a paper and an exam, determine your final grade.   Do everything required and get it done on time.  Don’t expect a reminder from the professor.
