"Professional golfer Phil Mickelson once said, 'A college education is important no matter what you do in life.' I am not an avid golf watcher, but I can say that Phil Mickelson has been correct so far on his assessment of college. My first year of college has been full of ups and downs (mostly ups), and I have learned quite a few life lessons.
Here goes ...
- Following your heart will bring you true happiness
- Doing schoolwork in bits and pieces along the way works way better
- Working with friends is always a better way to study - you will most likely share a good laugh and it makes the work load seem less painful with two brains working together
- Coming to college, you will work hard and study often, but remember that anything in life taken to an extreme is never healthy...during second semester I learned that enjoying myself, playing basketball and socializing with friends, actually increased how hard I studied and how focused I was when I sat down to do my work -- it increased my overall happiness
- Feeling happy allowed me to do my best work" ~ Micah Edwards, EG, Class of 2016
