“I wasn’t prepared and didn’t have a path to follow. I felt I was alone and didn’t see the big. Self-responsibility was part of the issue, but as I learned later…the colleges need to accept some of the responsibility as well” stated Arndt. “It all comes down to fundamentals. Not only orienting new students to the college experience, but also providing them the basic tools for success. In addition, both parties (college and student) need to be held accountable.” added Arndt.
