I advise all incoming freshmen to get involved on campus! Being a part of one, or many, student organizations on campus really helps build your support system. College is not easy, and your grades can slip if you don't have the support you need. Scholarships like the Detroit Promise are designed to make college possible for all students. Maintaining your GPA so that you can continue to receive the Detroit Promise Scholarship is important! Gain a support system so that you can have mentors and friends to lean on when you need to!"
