    Become involved in student life early and make essential college connections! If you are going for certificate only I urge you to to the certificate with associates degree so you can go back to school in 20 years (if thats what it takes) and achieve your BA. You will be very happy when you get your AA and certificate. Your prospective job is more likely to hire you and pay you better as well. Not to mention if you certificate program fall through or you decide you don't like it any more you have your AA (half of your BA) to fall back on. Something else to do RIGHT away is stay connected with not only your advisor, but career advisors too! Find the dean of the program of your interest and see If they can help you find a mentor to help further your educational experience. Third, Don't be tempted to think all you have to do is show up to class and pass the test without reading the text books. Don't do the opposite either, don't never go to class and read the book thinking thats all you need. The teachers there know these techniques and do NOT like them much. Going to class AND reading the text book is the way to wow your instructors and actually learn, as oppose to memorizing, something. If you do these things you will get grate grades and you will probably be able to get letters of recommendation from your instructors. The letters will help build your portfolio If you get great grades you will improve your overall education and opportunities for a job later. Remember all jobs are competitive in this economy so every edge on your opponent you can have is good! Most important, Don't be like me and think these things don't matter because you might just do what you set out to do and finish there. Then when you did not do these things you will learn that you should have.
