Sojourner-Douglass College Top Questions

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Laura

I would tell myself that it is not nearly as important to be popular as it is to be intelligent because when the party is over, and your friends are long gone your education will take you to the next level in life. I would tell myself that it is a good thing to study and be prepared for the test because that is the purpose of school, and even though I may not see it now the decisions I make as a student will have a profound effect on my future. I would tell myself that I am not here to just make the grade but to surpass my instructor?s expectations. I would remind myself that the whole world is looking at me and that I have a responsibility to the people, who came before me; who sacrificed that I might be able to have a better life. I would tell myself that by taking my education lightly I would ultimately become a person who was unequipped to be competitive in today?s market and as a result I am the weak link in the American workforce and nobody want to be the weakest link!
