Study, take the most classes that make you study,Oct 28 2011Kinesiology
Study, take the most classes that make you study, work at a job while in school, do volunteer work, while working and going to school. Do not just do school things. Get out and spread your wings.

Do NOT LET MOM and DAD get into the name the name, name game.
Otherwise known as name-dropping. Get in because YOU want in, it's about you and what you can do. College is about setting yourself up as an ADULT, to make your decisions, you write the emails for your essays, you email or call with questions, you make it work. Your MOM and DAD, if they did a good job of raising you, they put in the first 18 years, now you take the rope and tie your own knots in it.

Wow, I am just surprised at all the negativeAug 23 2010Unknown
Wow, I am just surprised at all the negative comments towards marijuana consumption on this website. It is not a harmful drug and the people who smoke it are not bad people. Some of you are just so ignorant towards "stoners". I will openly admit to smoking marijuana multiple times daily and have made the deans list at my school every semester. I am not a bad person with corrupt morals and had you run into me on the street you would hardly know I take part in smoking weed. Just think before you judge people next time.
