That give you meaning? *Dean of College Joe Dieker reading on-screen text* Democracy, and change, and progression in society, only happens when people have the education they need to make good decisions, discern good from evil, discern fake news from real news, and, and be a participant in a democratic society. *BCI Director Jodi Schafer reading on-screen text* People learn from their failures. And, many times, there are individuals who look at a failure as a bad thing, and I think in life, the more you fail, the more you actually learn. *Dean of Students Gwen Schimek reading on-screen text* There’s gonna be challenges, and there’s gonna be things that you never anticipated having to deal with, and there’s going to be challenges that you knew were going to be ahead of you, but always take time to not immediately dismiss something. And if something seems like it’s a challenge that’s too big, take a step back, take some time to think about it, and figure out if it really is too big for you, or if it’s just the right challenge.
