It’s that time of the year again. Our recent high school graduates getting ready to head to college. As a father of five and informally of many more especially our youth corps members who are ready to head out to college. I’m nervous for them. There is a big great world beyond what they have experienced ever before.
Many have yet to spend more than a few days away from their homestead and unlikely ready to thrive on their own. It’s likely going to be a year of survival.
The best I can do for any of these students is to provide some fatherly advise and words of wisdom based on deep personal experiences.
Fatherly Top Five:
- Set a firm two-drink limit for yourself
- Stay true to yourself at all times
- Listen to your inner voice carefully
- Don’t commit to the first boy or girl you meet
- Don’t join a sorority during your first year of college
It is important to have FUN but not at the expense of bad grades or failing out of college. I have seen too many do all the above only to derail their dreams and realistic ambitions.
Don’t become a statistic and remember a college education is very expensive for your parents.
Live life to the fullest and stay within the boundaries of your capabilities.
P.S. Good Luck Kasey…………..
