Institutional Commitment

A positive attitude toward your college or university

Students enroll in college for lots of different reasons. According to a recent national survey, the vast majority of students enroll in college to get a better job or ensure future financial success.


While you may be focused on your current classes, your major, and - eventually - that job, don’t forget that your college or university is here to help. College provides a host of benefits beyond just getting a degree. Make sure to ask, pursue, and enjoy those opportunities while you can.

I'm going to college. I don't care if it ruins my career. 
I'd rather be smart than a movie star.
