A special message from a 2008 alumni:
An alumni’s message to current Chelsea students:
Who wants a powerful future? Do you want to affect your community? Do you want to help people?
The only way to have a powerful future is to do well in high school and college. The people who have a successful life are not only the ones who got straight A’s in school. The world’s most successful people are the ones who were organized, worked hard, and stayed motivated. Some examples:
- Ben Carson, world famous brain surgeon, struggled in school. He stayed motivated and used his tools to achieve his goals.
- Thomas Edison was thrown out of many schools. He knew how he learned and used his skills to invent many great things.
Getting Through College
If you do the following, you will survive college and have a powerful future.
-Get a 1-2 inch D-ring binder for each class. Your professor will tell you to keep it organized. Get at least 5 dividers for each binder to organize your papers.
- Get a plan book for your homework and time management. Color-code it so it will stand out to you.
- Get a USB stick for your papers.
2.) Use your resources:
-Time is a resource. Your time is valuable; use it. Plan your time around your work and transportation. Plan a little fun time every day for video games, friends, and family – whatever is fun for you.
-Go to your advisors, professors, tutors, and friends for help.
-Use the technology in the labs, centers and at home.
-Use highlighters, paper, outlines, study guides, and books to help you.
3.) Get your butt to class:
a. -Be on time to class; stay in class
b. -Turn off your phone in class
c. –Pay attention to the teacher and not your friends
d. –Ask questions, write down homework clearly, and take notes
Do these things, and you’ll survive your first year of college.
