Today marks day three of the Top Five Reasons why you ought to tune in daily to the Green Eagle Blog.
Reason #3: Would you pay for a gym membership and never go
Last year I bought a gym membership because I wanted to lose a few pounds and get in shape. I went to the gym a few times but then I stopped going. A few months into my gym membership I was upset because I had not lost one pound. I was paying for something that I was not using and then I wondered why I wasn’t getting the results I expected.
College is like that gym membership. You decide to go to college because you want a college degree and you invest the money to do so. Many of us expect to get good grades, have fun and get a degree but how can we get what we expect if we don’t put the work in.
In order to get the results you desire from college is to attend class, study and get involved. Every month that I did not go to the gym I was losing $29.99. Each class that you miss has a dollar amount attached to it, for every class you miss it is like paying $57 and not getting anything for it.
From your classes to the programs on campus to the resources available, you are paying for the college experience. Get your money’s worth, go to the Learning Center to learn how to study more effectively, attend the event being hosted on campus and most of all, go to class. Just by doing these things you are not only getting your moneys worth, but you will help achieve your desired results.
What are your desired results? Is there a certain GPA goal you have, do you want to get involved on campus? Tell us in the comment section and you will be entered into our weekly drawing happening this Friday.
