Persisting simply means sticking to it! It involves persevering in a task through completion; remaining focused, and looking for ways to reach your goal when stuck. Never give up!
"Achieving success in academics is not about making good grades and perfect test scores your goal. Achieving success is about developing the learning behaviors (studying, class participation and immersion in course material) that makes a lifelong learner. Make lifelong learning your goal and success in anything you attempt is assured. What I love most about Allan Hancock College is that it provides the optimal environment for cultivating lifelong learners."
