West Now Presents a New Series Challenging Us to Think Differently About Time Management
by Chris Hewitt, West's VP of Marketing
This special presentation will explore some visionary ideas on how to approach time and through those designs, tools we can use for managing your time "portfolio".
What would you tell a prospective student about your learning experience?
" You have to be dedicated. You have to own it. You have to take responsibility for it. It is an opportunity to discipline yourself. You have to make that kind of judgment to yourself and say, "I'm going to do whatever it takes to get through my program." That means studying extra hours, calling the university to talk with mentors, getting additional study guides to support you. It is about discipline. That is the driving force I feel that can take you to the next level. Those were the tools that I used: being steadfast, being responsible, and being obligated to this degree. "
