CAMPUS LIFE: Some won't make the walk! Why?

Springfest is over and now it's really down to the wire. Just a week until finals and for some just one more week until the reality of walking across the stage to obtain your college degree will be real!

For others, that reality may not be as real for they have not met all the requirements to get their degree. But why?

We all have the same equal opportunity to finish all of our graduation requirements in four years. Some people just don't think about how their freshman year can determine how the rest of their college career will go.

It's kind of like when you fold your clothes after you do your laundry. Then you don't have to worry about your clothes being wrinkled when you go put them on. Same thing with college. If you start off doing things right, you won't have to worry about any major problems happening later on down the line.

Make your freshman year the best of your four years in college, academically at least. That will set you up for three more academically successful years. To all of the 2014 graduates, congratulations! You finally made it!
