I believe that all of us go to college with one common reason -- to succeed. Everyone strives very hard to succeed in college. You have to exert 101% effort on all your work. You will havea lot of homeworks to do, quizzes and exams to answer, and term papers you have to finish. But aside from effort on the school works, you also have to consider other factors such as some people who are suffering from crab mentality. lol. They want to pull down those who are rising up or reaching success. I have already encountered many people like this and you should be strong enough to deal with them. Just disregard the bad things that they say about you. You have to be strong enough. There are many people like this not only in college but also when you go job hunting, so it is a good thing you have already encountered people like this before you finish college, so that when you go to work, you will not be surprised of these people anymore. As long as you know that what you are doing is right and that you are not stepping on anyone, just do it. Don't mind what other people say.
