Advice for students just entering college: “Always be on time to your classes. Read over your syllabus, that is your guideline for you to succeed and pass your class. Talk to your Professors, ask them questions, talk to them and visit them during their office hours if you are confused about an assignment or a test. Also, at least know one or two people in your class that you can study with or ask questions that really understand the class or subject. Visit and talk to your counselor every chance you get to see if you are on the right track or not. And finally, Study, Study, and Study!”
