For nearly two decades, I've been committed to preparing the most inspiring and motivated college students for graduate/professional school and lifelong achievement. I have learned that my very best students were focused, driven, and disciplined enough to follow these key steps-to-success during their senior year.
Whether you are heading off to college this fall as a freshman or as a returning student, it is critical that you think about your preparation -- not just in the practical matters of packing to outfit your residence hall room -- but also in preparing your mindset so you can truly get the most out of college.
It is often said that the best things in life are the most simple and therefore the most under-appreciated. If you think of the happiest times in your life they are most likely to be around loved ones, when you were being creative or when you were giving of yourself. These have nothing to do with money.
