Heading off to college is an exciting, overwhelming thing. Adolescence is officially over, and while you’re not quite part of the workaday adult world, you’re closer than you’ve ever been before. At the same time, college also provides you with a world of distractions and freedoms that you’ve never had before. There are parties to attend, romances to start, hobbies to explore, and countless opportunities to expand your definition of who you are and what your life is going to be about. Staying focused on classwork in that environment isn’t always easy.
This sigil serves as a humble reminder of the original goal: To get the most out of this experience, to learn what you set out to learn, and to stick to the tough work of class assignments and studying, even if it’s not always the most fun thing in the moment.
