From One Rustite to Another: Alumnus Extends Advice to Freshmen Class
Congratulations new students on almost completing New Student Orientation. I hope that you’ve found thematerials to be useful in your new endeavors. As a recent graduate of Rust College, I found that everything thatwas given to me was very useful. During your first weeks, listen very carefully to EVERYTHING. There may be a couple of classmates and upperclassmen that say, "this is pointless". Do me a favor: keep calm and ignorethem. Do not allow their opinions to affect the reason you came to college. You might be questioning why youactually chose this institution…let me be the first to say, you didn’t pick RUST, RUST chose you. This is notmeant to be a controversial statement. Once you realize why you are at Rust, you will understand. Unfortunatelyfor me, it took two to three years into my undergraduate years before I realized the importance of college andthat I wasn’t serious enough.So, the first of my many tips to help you to love and make it through your undergraduate college years is know why you are inschool (Purpose), know why RUST chose you (Destiny), and know and remember what drives you (Life). By knowing these three,nothing should get in the way of your success, NOTHING! Knowing your Purpose in Life, should lead you right to your Destiny.Secondly, whatever your weakest subject is, take the extra time into learning it. More than likely, you will have to use that verysubject in every class some way or another. Last one on the list: Reputation. For most of you, it is understood that you are freshlyout of high school, and you want to be free. But free comes with a cost in college. The mistakes you make will follow you your whole tenure at Rust. Do not earn a damaging name for yourself within the first couple weeks of school. Be careful of what you doon campus as well as off campus. If I only knew then, what I know now…
If you need any kind of advice you may email atontonio89@gmail.comor tweet me at @Leigh_Boi.

For it’s the students that are serving our country as well as pursuing an educationfrom a prestigious institution as Rust College.”
