What do the best college students do to succeed?

  1. A focus on deep learning: curiosity, creativity, tenacity, respect, self-esteem, compassion...
  2. Take risks, make mistakes (and sometimes fail) but don't give up.
  3. Learn the best that has been thought and said across all cultures and all times.
  4. Use your time here to cultivate habits of thought that will enable you to grow and adapt throughout your life.
  5. Learning is a journey - not a destination. Someone could give you all THEIR answers, but it is your experiences and what you've learned during the process that really matters.
