This is a blog written by Denise Pope, , PhD. Co founder of Challenge Success located on the Stanford University Campus in the Education Department.
This year I had the honor of speaking to students and their families at a high school graduation ceremony. Below is an excerpt from my speech that I wish to share with the entire CS community:
The most important piece of advice my oldest daughter and I heard when she was packing for college was: Don’t forget to bring a doorstop. This is imminently practical advice because college dorm rooms typically have heavy industrial, self-closing, and sometimes self-locking doors, so the doorstop ensures that you don’t get locked out each time you climb the flights of stairs to bring up another suitcase or set of plastic drawers. Following this advice, my daughter and I bought a cute little blue doorstop in the shape of a quotation mark, which seemed perfect – and kind of adorable – because she wanted to be an English major.
