Pep talks you didn’t know you needed… 

  • You don’t have to have it all figured out. Just keep showing up for each moment, each hour, and each day. 
  • Don’t rush, you might miss all the things you are meant to experience. 
  • Don’t regret anything you learned from. Lessons learned the hard way tend to have the most impact. 
  • People fall, just continue to be one of the ones who get back up. 
  • Trust that all the things you’ve experienced in life, (good and bad) can be used for your good. Don’t give up before you come up. 

“Success isn’t about how your life looks like to others; it’s about how it feels to you.” -Michelle Obama

Remember, scholarships* are Important!

Scholarships provide an opportunity for students to earn an education with assistance from an outside source.

Scholarships can fill the gap. Scholarships can help decrease the amount of loans needed to complete college.

Be sure to review the general eligibility requirements, and the application instructions and deadline dates before submitting the application.

November is National Native American Heritage Month

Main Campus Student: join us in MacDermid 116
Online Students: Stream the presentation

According to the Library of Congress’s National Native American Heritage Month website, this month was established as an effort to recognize “the significant contributions the first Americans made to the establishment and growth of the U.S., has resulted in a whole month being designated for that purpose.”

In 1990 President George H. W. Bush approved a joint resolution designating November 1990 “National American Indian Heritage Month.” Similar proclamations, under variants on the name (including “Native American Heritage Month” and “National American Indian and Alaska Native Heritage Month”) have been issued each year since 1994.

The clubs and organizations offered on campus provide students the chance to engage in not only their passions and interests but provide opportunities to develop and learn new skills, to make new friends and have fun, to be involved in your school and the community around them and above all to pursue and something that is important to you.
