Who are your friends? Do they support you? Do they keep you motivated? Do they have your best interest at heart? Having good friends will definitely make your time at Cheyney more enjoyable. But being a good friend is more than that. Straight up, friends should make you accountable. They should be able to check you if you’re not doing right, and you should also be able to check them if they are not doing right. You and your friends need to hold each other accountable for success.

So what are you going to do when you graduate? While some of you are going directly to Grad School, the vast majority will be starting out in the job market. While a degree is nice, it’s not everything. While having good grades are nice, it is not everything. While having experience is nice, it’s not everything. So what are employers looking for? Employers are looking for the total package. That’s right, most employers want it all. Do you have a degree; check. Do you have good grades; check (sort of; crosses fingers). Do you have experience; um okay I did work at a summer camp one year. And there was that one time when I helped out my cousin at his shop.

College is not cheap. Tuition, room & board, meal plans, books, incidentals, and accidentals all add up. So how do you pay for all this stuff (and it’s not parents; at least not all of it)? It's through Financial Aid of course. So why wait so long to get your information in? You know what you need to do don’t you? College is already expensive enough, do you need to make it even more costly? You’ve got to be a smart shopper. You’ve got to look around to get the best deal possible.

Why do I have to go to class if my teacher doesn’t take attendance? Why do they keep walking around and pointing at the board? Why do they keep repeating themselves? We know that figuring out college professors can be an assignment all to itself, but there really is a method to their madness.
