University of Phoenix-Louisiana Campus Top Questions

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


My best friend is a general manager of a radio station, driving a nice car and living in a nice house. We are both spanish, single moms and at one time, we were room mates, working the same job. I looked at my situation one day and asked her, "how did you get to where you are now?" Her response, "You have to finish college, without the college education, I am no different than all of the other sales associates at my company. With the degree, I have an advantage for promotions and an understanding of what goes on within the company that others have not a clue". So as I began taking classes, I realized how right she was. Attending the University of Phoenix is not only putting a piece of paper in my hand, it's filling my mind with knowledge, power, and drive. I used to sit at a computer and wait for the clock to hit 5 so I could leave "work". Today, I am putting 105% into everything I do at my job, it is no longer "work", it is a CAREER. The value is in my mindset, my future is finally looking bright.


If I could go back and talk to myself I would tell myself to stop and listen. Everything will come in time and your only given one mother in life. True love comes at a price, and education is everything.
