Each second, day, month, and year we get the chance to start anew.
The past is just that—past. It is true that life is not a Nintendo game, but we can reset and change course to put our lives in the direction of fulfilling our potential and living our purpose. Whether the fall semester was your worst or your best, it is a new year and a new semester—a chance at a new beginning.
As a new semester with new classes begins, I encourage you to explore your potential and grow—not just as a student, but also as the unique person you are. You have a purpose in life that only you can fulfill. Part of fulfilling that purpose is the pursuit of excellence and educational achievement.
The tag line for the Byrd School of Business is “Success stories start here.” Let this be the year you declare that your success story begins.
