Newsletter from NJ Secretary of Higher Education: Thinking About Your Future Today Can Increase Your Options Tomorrow

by Office of Secretary of Higher Education

Congratulations to all of our talented New Jersey college and university students! As you begin this academic year, I encourage you to take full advantage of what your institution has to offer. The choices you make -- from course selection to major, from on-campus activities to community service -- will shape the choices you have in the future.

Perhaps, the single most valuable advice I can provide is for you to know what your campus offers and to take full advantage of its resources.  Remember your academic advisors, faculty, career services, counseling services, student activities and financial aid administrators are there to facilitate your success.  You, however, are in charge of your college career.  Be willing to ask for help, to welcome the assistance and talent of others, and to learn from errors and mistakes.  After all, for all of us who love learning, it is the experimentation, the exploration, the possibility, the creative risk, the imagination in full flight that intrigues and engages us.
