COLLEGE BOUND ADVICE - STUDENTS RECALL THEIR PARENTS' WORDS OF WISDOM

My mom started giving me little pieces of advice for weeks before move-in day. Always travel with a buddy. Be nice to the shy girl down the hall. Don’t be the drunk girl at the party. Take classes that interest you. Find your passion. Call your brother. Join the newspaper. On and on. Yes Mom, I know. Yes, Mom, I will. My mom had me covered for everything except how much I would miss her nagging little pieces of advice.

Failure is an option: Colleges try to ease student fear and anxiety

“Failure is normal. It’s healthy. And I think people on this panel would argue it actually is transformative,” Peter Forkner, director of Bentley’s counseling center, told students. “If you’re not failing, it probably means that you’re not taking enough risks.”

WALTHAM, Mass. — Bentley University has plenty of success stories among its faculty and alumni. But one recent evening, the school invited students to hear about the failures. Speaking to a crowded…

Touring UNC Chapel Hill? For student spotting head to the Old Well, a treasured landmark and visual symbol of the campus located right on the main quad. Legend has it that if you drink from the water fountain as a freshman, you’ll get a 4.0. Students pose for pictures here in their caps and gowns, and it’s a great spot to stop and watch university life go by.

Love this story about when there's a will there's a way. When Rhonda E. Davis told her husband she was going to college, he left her and she was forced to move into the dorms. Yes, the dorms--and now she's not only graduating from the nation’s oldest historically black college, but she is the valedictorian.

A Southwest Philadelphia grandmother lived in the dorms at Cheyney University, and she was a star. On Saturday, she will achieve her dream of a college degree and graduate as valedictorian, a poignant story for the nation's oldest historically black college, fighting for its survival.

WHAT I WISH I KNEW DURING THE COLLEGE PROCESS—The Male Perspective

From one dad..."As parents, we get very caught up in where our children “should go” and often wind up looking at the same schools as everyone else. In NYC, where I’m from there, people get too caught up in the whole college process. I wish my wife and I had thought and looked outside the box a little more. College is what you make it. What you put in is what you get out. I don’t think it really matters where you go.

They say hindsight is 20/20 so we asked fathers who’ve been through the college process to share what they learned and their advice to those just starting out. Honest, moving and chock full of wisdom you need to read these heartfelt responses as you embark on your college admissions journey.&nbs

Fun Facts: Why Cornhuskers? Way back, the NU football teams were called a wide range of nicknames such as the Rattlesnake Boys, Antelopes, and Bugeaters. In 1899, Nebraska State Journal writer Cy Sherman began referring to Nebraska's football team as the Cornhuskers, and soon after the school officially adopted the nickname. In 1945 the "Cornhusker State" became the official nickname of Nebraska. For more information on where to eat, stay , and play click here.
