Mary McLeod Bethune gave everyone of her B-CC students a
chance to be successful. I believe that is the
philosophy set to date. Many students are given a chance
at Cookman.(Even the ones who would have never been accepted
anywhere else). I advise students to look beyond what
they can see with their eyes and look with their
hearts. There is no such thing as a perfect
college/university. You must find your niche and go for
it. Anywhere you go (even the workforce) you will find
there are people without proper professionalism. I will not
quite my job because of their lack of discipline.
At Bethune-Cookman,I was taught to be on time. The
professors frowned on the fact of students coming to class
late. Also, I was part of this magnificent band. You
were required to be on time there as well.
I am always on time to work. When I say
on time, I mean I am there 20-30 minutes early.
I contribute this to Bethune-Cookman.
I work with professionals who
graduated from some of the well known (better known) universities
in Florida. I am just as or better equipped
in my craft than they due to the more personable
and well informed Professors at Bethune Cookman.
Please take time to reflect on yourself and
your goals. Seek help from your professors who will
help you be successful. You should be an intrinsic
and self motivated learner. Make things happen.
everybody at Cookman has been given the same opportunities as
anyone else. It is up to you what you
do with it. BCU is a great tool to use
to build a successful future for yourself.
