Just graduated magna cum laude tonight!

Let me tell you my story.

I originally got mediocre grades in high school. In 2004 I left home to go to college. I dropped out of college and returned home in 2006. After a year of rotting in my parent's basement, my parents urged me to go back to school. I got a part time job at McDonalds and applied at a local community college. I paid my way through 2 years there and earned an associate's degree. I transferred to a 4-year university, and because I had done so well in community college I qualified for scholarships. I maintained a high GPA and retained my financial aid. I took advantage of an undergraduate research experience and got a paper published in the International Journal of Applied Mathematics. This research experience helped me get an internship, where I impressed my mentors enough that they offered me a job after I graduated. I will be starting my job there next Monday.

I urge all of you to never give up before it is over. If you do poorly on an assignment, strive to do better. Learn from your mistakes. Always try to improve yourself. If you do these three things, you can turn your failures into success.

Congratulations to the class of 2013 - our life is just beginning!

Congratulations! Recently started College myself. Finished my AA last year and am working on finishing my degree in Computer Science. I'm assuming you'll be pursuing a masters and phd?
