As a proponent of life-long learning, I believe that by assisting those who are beginning or continuing their educational journey, I am "giving back" to the all college and university staff who helped me along my educational path, and I am "paying forward" by enabling current and future students to pick up the torch of educational pursuit and become a beacon to those who follow after them. Your college career will present you with many challenges. As you face and overcome these challenges, you will also acquire the poise and self-confidence that are the rewards of achievements earned through hard work and perseverance. You will learn not only knowledge and skills useful in the workplace, but you will achieve an awareness of ideas and concepts that transcend and enrich our daily lives. You will learn how to communicate your ideas to others, and how to be open to ideas from others. Life is abundant with adventures, if you are open to recognizing them. But, for your adventure to begin, you must take that first step.
