Spring Into Success: Embracing the Journey of the Final Weeks of the Semester

Share on Social Media

Spring has sprung, and we find ourselves in the homestretch of the semester—a time buzzing with anticipation, fatigue, and the promise of new beginnings. Whether you’re logging into virtual classes or attending in-person sessions, you might be feeling the weight of end-of-year activities. Some of you are sprinting towards the finish line with a newfound energy, while others may be dragging their feet a bit. Wherever you fall on this spectrum, remember to lean on the study habits you’ve honed throughout the term.

As we approach finals, now’s the time to carve out dedicated space for preparation. Don’t leave it all to the last minute; give yourself the gift of ample time to review and revise. Additionally, consider dipping your toes into the pool of summer internships. Don’t hesitate to take steps that will propel you towards your professional aspirations.

Amidst the chaos and excitement, take a moment to appreciate where you are in your academic and life journey. This season, though hectic, is just a fleeting chapter in the grand story of your life. Embrace every moment—the highs, the lows, and everything in between.

As we bid adieu to another semester, let’s remain steadfast, resilient, and open to new opportunities. You’ve worked tirelessly to reach this point, and your perseverance is commendable. Keep pushing forward, and remember to savor the journey.

Wishing you all a successful April and a moment of reflection on how far you’ve come.

Ndala M. Booker, Ed.D.

Biden Calls for Greater Support of HBCUs, HSIs, and MSIs

Biden Calls for Greater Support of HBCUs, HSIs, and MSIs

When President Biden addressed over 32 million viewers for the annual State of the Union (SOTU) last week, he used the occasion to issue a full throttle support for higher education.

While speaking on his administration’s accomplishments in his last four years of service, Biden also addressed what he called “the future of possibilities we can build together.”

Biden has made access to affordable education a cornerstone of his presidential tenure, and he reinforced that position by calling for an increase in Pell Grants and a further increase in “our record investments in HBCUs [Historically Black Colleges and Universities] and Hispanic and Minority Serving Institutions [HSIs and MSIs].”

Scholars say that they were pleased by the president’s mention of these institutions and hope to see his call to action translate into increased funding for these under-resourced yet high-achieving institutions.

“[The speech] was very fiery,” said Dr. Pietro A. Sasso, an associate professor of higher education at Delaware State University, an HBCU in Dover. “That tone and fervor carried over when he talked about HBCUs and MSIs and HSIs. He was just as passionate and bold when he was talking about that in the same way he talked about other crises. It’s not just student loans, it’s trying to engage in addressing the structural funding inequities.”

Dr. Royel M. Johnson, professor at the Rossier School of Education at the University of Southern California (USC) and director of the National Assessment of Collegiate Campus Climates in the USC Race and Equity Center, said that Biden’s call for more investments “hopefully signifies that [his administration] will double down on their commitment to these institutions, given their vital role to our society and democracy.”
