CAMPUSPEAK is helping you prepare new students for an unforgettable experience.
New students, having just completed the major educational milestone of high school graduation, feel on top of the world and ready to tackle college. Some will feel completely prepared for this new experience, but most will run a gamut of emotions: happiness about gaining independence, anxiety about fitting in with new friends and doubt about whether they made the right decision.
Some advice they might receive from those who came before them begin with the words “oh, what I wish I knew about college before…”, hoping to guide students through better choices than they themselves had made.
The five speakers have fun, rousing and interactive keynotes to get new students excited about the next stage in their lives, and to set them on a path filled with plenty of success and few regrets!
“Oh, I wish I knew that college isn’t a bubble that lets you make bad decisions without consequences. Consider your limits and consider that bad things can happen to anyone when poor decisions are made.”
