Once I went to Fontbonne, all the advice I got in high school was not true. Everyone told me that teachers did not care if you went to class and that classes were extremely hard. At Fontbonne, the teachers do care about students coming to class and they care about students learning. In one of my classes a student was constantly absent and the instructor didn’t like it and even took it personally!
The best advice that I have received in college is information about internships! For a long time, I could not figure out what I wanted to do with my business degree. Then someone told me about the retail management internship at Nordstrom. It was very competitive and the person told me how to get past 500 applicants. I ended up getting the job for next summer! I’m really glad that I do not have to worry about what I will do after I graduate!
