If I could write a letter to my 18 year old self…

Organized by Tracy Tillapaugh

While crowd-sourcing knowledge a few weeks ago, I received some great responses on Twitter to the question, “what would you tell your 18-year-old self?”

I asked people to tweet their responses to me. Here’s what some of our SU alumni, staff and community members had to say!

Career Services' Kim Brown as a teenager, pictured here with Katie Couric (who had hair extensions!)

@kimincuse: Katie Couric’s job isn’t so great. Seek fulfillment and follow your heart.

@lauraaamac: “Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day.” -Pooh

@orange_spice:  don’t worry, college will be so much better than HS. Take advantage of everything at SU. Oh yea, start saving money!

@PJASchultz: Do what you want to do, not just what others expect.

@stefnoble: Start making a financial plan for the future now.

@SunnyinSyracuse: “choose summer internships instead of several retail jobs” “be involved in many different communities”

@wrbeard: Don’t wait 5 years to grow some confidence. Believe in your self.

@zbdaddy: Just try it! And figure out what you want to do and study for it.

What would you tell your 18 year old self?
