Free Advice

September 2, 2015 - 3:27pm
Don't skip class. Do your homework. Set your alarm. Be careful. Have fun. Make friends. Get a fan. Make good choices. Buy a bus pass. Pick a good major. Get good grades. Don't take early classes. The regular advice goes on and on for new college students. (But seriously, get a's really hot this week.) Today marks the day the new Spartan freshmen start classes - and I'm sure each one has heard a lot of advice from family and friends. I'm also sure it is pretty good advice too. While I don't have a student starting classes today, I thought I might as well jump on the bandwagon and offer some advice of my own. Be grateful. This isn't just college. This is one of the most incredible opportunities ever presented to you. There are many young people around the world who would give anything to go to school and will never be able to. Never, ever forget how fortunate you are and remember to thank those who helped you get here. Don't ever take being a Spartan for granted. Make the most of it. This is a very special place. You could simply go to class, do your work and earn your degree - but you would be missing out on so much more that's offered here.
