Registering early literally paid off for Noor Malik, a future educator, having won the grand prize of free tuition for the spring semester in Lone Star College-CyFair’s “Finish What You Started” December campaign.
“This tuition prize has brought me more inspiration to succeed in college,” said Malik who registers early to get her schedule organized and payment plan covered ahead of time. “It will motivate me to work harder than I have before.”
Malik is pursuing a teaching career to help others succeed in their academic, creative and social skills. She plans to transfer to the University of Houston Downtown in Fall 2017 to pursue her bachelor’s, and eventually her master's degree in Fine Arts in order to become an arts professor.
“Since I had been taught those skills throughout my youth, I believe that returning that favor to others would strengthen the use of how education is taught and shared,” she said.
Dean of Student Services Ashlie Resendez said the two-week campaign before the holiday break was an outreach effort to encourage early registration to avoid long lines and to see advisors or make payments, before heavy registration periods in January.
“Registering and paying early is a great way to ensure that you have the classes you want for the spring semester, not to mention it reduces stress and anxiety,” said Resendez.
Students who registered for spring semester classes between Nov. 14 and Dec. 2 were entered to win free tuition or bookstore certificates.
