Advice for students going to college?
Don't just float through college - have fun, but remember that you are there for a purpose. You are investing in your future and the choices you make in college will either help you achieve your dreams or will hinder your progress. Dream big, make a plan to achieve your dream, then work hard at your plan until it is accomplished.
