I am always
available to answer any questions you may have regarding college and the admissions process. If you e-mail me with your questions, I will do my best to answer them for you. During my Junior and Senior years in high school I read
almost every book in the library regarding college admissions. Most of the information I obtained is still useful today. Though
I do not have as much time now to read admissions guides as soon as they are published, I still make an attempt to be knowledgeable
and helpful to everyone.

Tips for your first semester at college
all of your school work as soon as it is assigned
Thirty minutes of psychology
reading a day is much easier to handle than 24 hours of cramming before the test. It may be hard at first, but once you get
your priorities in order, it will not be difficult to balance your school work, extra curricular activities, and leisure time.
*Keep abreast of things going on at your school!
Does the student government
address issues that concern you? Has there been a change in the general requirements for graduation? Does the administration
make decisions that benefit the entire student body? Will tuition and fees increase next term? Educate
yourself - don't leave it up to someone else to find out the rules and regulations for you.
