If there’s one thing about life you can always plan on, it’s that things never go as planned. Creating a road map for life is important in order to remain focused in the right direction. Speed bumps, pot holes and unexpected detours can shake our focus and cause us to lose sight of our goals. Even when we are off course due to a wrong turn, no matter how far off track we may be, the destination remains the same.
College gives us opportunities, advantages and the tools necessary to have the most direct and smooth path to our desired success. Simply put, the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. The college system may not be perfect, there’s always room for improvement, but it’s usually faster to take the highway than it is to take the back roads.
By no means is college easy—but neither is life. The more you put into something, the more you’ll get out. Whether you’re having problems in the classroom or at home, CCC is here to help. There are some people with an entire garage full of nice tools that barely get used, there are some people with a small shed full of rusty old tools that are fully utilized to fix and create all sorts of amazing things, and they are all sorts of people in between. It’s important to recognize the vast amount of tools Corning Community College has available and how to take advantage of these tools that can be used to fix problems and help construct your future.
