Is there a secret to achieving success at university?

There is, says UWindsor computer science grad Franklin Ezenwa (BSc 2015), and he promises to share it in his recently-published book, Be a High Achiever: Achieving All-round Success in College & University.

“The content of the book was squarely directed by a survey done on current students in colleges and universities to learn about their needs, fears, concerns, and desires,” Ezenwa says.

“I garnered priceless success tips from high-achieving students.”

His tips include:

  • planning a successful school journey;
  • selecting the right courses and program;
  • setting goals and formulating plans to bring them to fruition;
  • maintaining balance at school;
  • succeeding in the major areas of school life; and
  • getting ready for life after graduation.

Within a week following his graduation, he was hired by IBM Canada, where he currently works as a cloud developer.
