We work with our students because we truly believe this. Nelson Mandela knew what he was talking about – knowledge brings change. With every step you take as a student towards completing that degree, you are taking a step towards changing your life, controlling your future, and making this world a better place. Whether you want to be a professor, an accountant, a doctor, a lawyer, etc., your ability to step up to the plate, overcome all you have already, and pursue that dream of getting a college education is already creating change.
Why is education important to you? What changes do you wish to make? How has school impacted your life so far? What advice do you have for those just entering college?
