4 Smart Resolutions For College Bound Students


Are you planning to attend college next fall? If so, congratulations! You have just six months of mandatory schooling left before you’re off to pursue your life’s passion.

Your senior year of high school can make you or break you. Certainly, you want to take advantage of the remaining months, perhaps making the following smart resolutions with an eye toward the future:

1. Study Hard — Your junior year of high school was your most challenging, but your senior year should help you prepare for college. When you return to school after the first of the year, promise yourself that you’ll give your all into every project, test or report you’ll be working on.

2. Make Memories — Besides keeping your nose to the grind stone, you’ll want to create memorable moments before school comes to an end. Go to basketball games, participate in club activities, take the class trip and attend the senior prom. You’ll be glad you invested some extra time forging special friendships.

3. Fly Right — Some students have made early decisions for college by now. Most students are still pondering where they want to go. Likely, you know your top three choices — spend some time reviewing each school’s website to get a feel for the campus, curriculum and extracurricular activities. Plan follow up visits, if possible.

4. Look Beyond — For most 17- and 18-year-olds, imagining life when they’re 25 or 30 seems impossible. In some ways they’re correct. However, if you have a generalized idea where you want to be at various stages in your life, you have a better chance of reaching your goals. You can always modify your plans as you go along. No, wait…you most certainly will have to change your plans as you go along — that’s what life is all about!

I left the personal resolutions to you — don’t smoke, don’t chew and don’t hang up with guys & gals who do! Seriously, you’re about to embark on a transformative time in your life — make the most of it and enjoy your ride.
