A message to incoming college freshman

This is the time to try and fail

No one cares about how cool you look or how smart you are anymore

This ain’t high school

You’re in the big leagues

But it also means you are granted this abundant freedom

Use it wisely

Right now our greatest strength is our youth

We have time to do anything we want

This is not the time to play it safe. You don’t pay bills and you’re in a setting around other passionate students in your age group. College is your safety net to take risks

Imagine this: you could do nothing right for the next 10 years and still be young. You’d be 28

So for the next 10 years I want you to fail as many times as possible but not just failing

Trying

Finding your passion

Seeking

Good luck
