The Latin motto Per Ardua Ad Alta translates to something like Through efforts to high things.
My Student Union guide said that whilst the University might not like him saying it, it doesn’t matter if the Open Day today didn’t convince us that Birmingham was where we were going to go. He said that if there was one thing we were to take from our day, it was that wherever we go, we’ll achieve great things, if we’re motivated.
Dear potential university students everywhere: You have to be motivated. You have to want it. Whatever you do, whether you choose to go or not, choose for you. Be who you want to be. Do what you want to do. Strive to be successful. Strive to be happy. 🙂
