We are settling into another school year. Are you at the same school? Are you at a different school? Did you transition from middle to high school or high school to college or university?

If you are starting a new school and/ or going through a transition what questions and/ or concerns do you have?

What do you know now that you wish you knew when you started middle school, high school, or college? Is there anything you would have done differently as a younger student?

Have you ever received advice from older students? If so, what was it? Was it helpful? Why?

Advice For Students By Students at UNF

Recently I shared Student Futures with students at The University of North Florida’s Market Day. I had fun talking to students. I gave away small containers of A+ Dough Mate to those who took the time to write out advice to local high school students. The students at UNF wrote down such thoughtful advice. Some were more than willing to offer advice before they knew there was a free gift involved! I am grateful to the 50+ students who took the time to write out honest advice to high school students in and around Jacksonville.

Upcoming Events

Catch Student Futures next at Nease High School’s College Fair on September, 20th and then again at Lee High School in October. Some lucky high school students will be receiving those advice cards.
