In some places, students are already back in the classroom. On other campuses, they’ll be returning soon.
So, here are a few timely reminders.
For all students; moderate your alcohol use. According to an Associated Press article appearing on CNN.com today, “Research has found more than 40 percent of college students reported at least one symptom of alcohol abuse or dependence. One study has estimated more than 500,000 full-time students at four-year colleges suffer injuries each year related in some way to drinking, and about 1,700 die in such accidents.” Drinking, if you must do it, must be done responsibly.
For high school seniors who plan to attend college, organize your college search. The University of Louisiana has a “what to do next” list for students like you. You can request it at email@example.com or (800) 752-6553. You should also read a brief article listing 10 rules for selecting a college.
And, for high school seniors and college students, it is never too early, or too late, to look for a scholarship.
We hope you have a great school year!
