What students should know when pursuing a degree?
It is essential for students to set their priorities and have a vision of what it is they want to accomplish. Having a goal makes the journey a whole lot easier. Also, it is crucial for students to manage their time wisely. Good time management skills help avoid unnecessary stress. 
 
Where do you see yourself in five years?
In five years, I see myself as a student at a prestigious university pursuing a Doctorate in Business Administration. While being a student, I would like to be working at a well-known company where there is room for growth and improvement.

What-students-should-know-when pursuing a degree?                                When pursuing a degree, students need to have a long-term goal(s) set in place. Based off of that long-term goal(s), then short-term goals can be established, making one's collegiate journey much more rewarding as one will be completing milestones that will mark their future career. Don't be afraid to seek for help! We're all here to learn, and by asking for help, you'll learn a lot along the way, and it'll even help your networking. You never know who you may run across or what opportunity may be presented to you when you start reaching out. Read! When you read events and items that relate to your degree, it makes your courses much more enjoyable.

 Where do you see yourself in five years?

 I see myself already settled with a family, with a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) and hopefully taking steps towards obtaining my Doctor of Jurisprudence (JD). I would love to work for the federal government along the lines of criminal justice, dealing with foreign cases that involve financial fraud, for example.
