Additional Details

'. . . There are always those in the college willing to open doors for some one like yourself who really is trying to make it. Enter into college life . . . . Because reality never quite matches our romantic dreams, there is a tendency in the first college year to think perhaps you guessed wrong and the other campus is more attractive. This is a standard feeling in your freshman year. Don't give in to it, but come back for that second year and everything looks much better and you'll spend a happy four years . . . . Don't give up your dreams.'
