Treat College With Respect

Respect is one of our Benedictine values here at the College of St. Scholastica. When we talk about respect, we usually refer to those we share this community with, and ourselves. But perhaps we should take it a little bit deeper.

Over the past four years, I have seen people come and go. There are some who left because of financial troubles, other reasons included family emergencies and such. But, there were a few who dropped out simply because they were not prepared for college. There were a few that I witnessed that treated college like one big party.

I came up at a program called the First Year Development Program (FYDP). I was admitted into this program because my grades were not yet suitable for actual college. However, this institution still accepted me and I treated that program with massive amounts of respect.

Obviously, I highly recommend college; it has been a wonderful experience filled with ups and downs. I don’t recommend college to those who are not prepared for it or who simply don’t want to go. There are a few people who don’t respect college as a whole.

This disrespect of college can trickle down into one studies and can very well distract others from pursuing their dreams of completing the four years it takes to get a degree.

It’s important to challenge ourselves with what respect means for ourselves and the institution that we attend.
