5. Prepare to judge and be judged
jury-boxNo matter how much talent you have, the rude awakening in graphic design school is there are actually people with more talent than you! On the flip-side you have more talent than others.

In any liberal arts college, talent is the coin of the realm and if you have a well-balanced, realistic image about your abilities and skills, you won't be fixating about comparing yourself to others.

On the other hand, if you believe you have superior skills, Michelangelo said, "I am still learning." If the great Renaissance master understood this principle about talent, you can also remain open in your education experiences.

Bill Withers, composer of the song "Lean on me," has a lyric that speaks about the need for relying on others:

Lean on me when you're not strong,
I'll be your friend,
I'll help you to carry on...

In graphic design school your classmates can be a tremendous help in providing you with honest feedback, moral support, and in some cases the beginnings of lifelong friendships.

Whether you are outgoing or not, due to the natural camaraderie that exists in liberal arts colleges, you'll find opportunities to develop good social networks.

Be sure to enrich your college education with student support in addition to your academic life.
