What message would you like to send to young Blacks who are considering going to college?
College will change your life! Not only does college help prepare you for a future career, it also teaches you how to think critically and exposes you to incredible opportunities that you might not otherwise have. Be prepared to work hard, have high expectations of yourself, and believe that you deserve to be where you are. Find a mentor, someone who will be there to offer advice during the good times and bad times. Believe in yourself! "We need to internalize this idea of excellence. Not many folks spend a lot of time trying to be excellent." - President Barack Obama
