Best Studying Advice
Post-Its, a lot of them, and a highlighter.  Don't be aftraid to mark your book or make extracts if you can't.  It helps when you review.

Most Valuable Learning Experience
"Almost all good writing begins with terrible first efforts.  You need to start somewhere."  This is a quote from an essay by Anne Lamott I read in creative writing class.  To me it says don't let fear of failure hold you back, you're going to make mistakes, that's a given, but we still have to try.

Relax and Have Fun
The front lobby of the girl's dorm is an interesting place to spend a few hours.

What I like most about Howard College
The staff go above and beyond "normal" expectations.  They are willing to do whatever it takes to help you succeed and take an eager interest in student's education.

What I tell future Howard College students
Howard is an amazing place to grow and learn; a place where you are challenged and encouraged to take your education beyond the classroom.
