Success From Day One On Campus
The stakes are higher than ever for college students. Freshman year on campus is the most critical time for getting on a track to either success or failure.
Sadly, nearly 30% of college students drop out before their sophomore year. For those that do succeed, earning a college degree is a game-changer. College grads have not only landed most of the new jobs, they’re also earning more — as much as $17,500 more a year, on average, compared to those with just a high school diploma. Further, on campus they build future connections and business relationships, and develop their character and grit.
This is why a student’s freshman career is such an important time. The college experience today is not simply about getting great grades and being top of the class. It sets the foundation for future success in all aspects of life.
The truth is, the most important lessons that incoming freshmen need to know:
-Weren’t taught in high school
-Won’t be shared at college orientation (except in rare instances)
-And, will never be shared in a college lecture hall.
This is exactly why College Success Expert Antonio Neves wrote 50 Things Every College Student Should Know. The book provides students and parents with valuable lessons and tips to set them up for long-term success, starting with day one on campus.
