Personal Responsibility

I think that so many people today are looking for someone to blame for things that are not right in their lives that blaming others just becomes another bad habit. Wake up people; this is college, not primary school. You are adults and it's time to take care of your own business, it is called personal responsibility. Sooner or later you will have to take responsibility for your life, so stop blaming Financial Aid and the Admissions office for not holding your hand. Make a point to find out what is needed and follow through on your end before you begin criticizing others. This is a valuable life lesson and one that I hope you will pass along to others.

Financial Aid

Unfortunately, I think that we try to place blame on others, without first doing our own homework. I think that as adults we need to be more responsible. Things don't just happen on their own. We must take the initiative and find out what we need to do. No one will ever get upset with us for asking too many questions. I too have recently started back to school and had no clue that there were additional documents needed. If I had taken the time to find out what was going on I would have known that the Federal Government was requesting additional information. Once that was turned in and reviewed, things went a bit smoother. Ask questions. Be persistent.

Financial Aid

I stay on top of my financial aid, the people in the office have no clue what they are doing and lose documents. Not asking to be coddled, just asking that they not lose my paperwork. I'm currently thankful that I am going to school far away from here next semester.
