4. “To be early is to be on time, to be on time is to be late, to be late is unacceptable.”

If Hampton University didn’t teach you anything else during your freshmen year, the concept of timeliness is one lesson that resonated thoroughly. Although we may not practice it as much as we should, when we are running late, we feel absolutely horrible about it. If we oversleep for class, we pop out of the bed like a piece of toast in the oven. If it is Founder’s Day and the event in Ogden has already started, we know to make our way to Chapel to watch the event on the big screen or to not show up to the event at all because we already know an administrator at Ogden would kindly cut his/her eye at us and turn us away. Aside from Hampton, being on time will always be beneficial in everyday life. It shows that you are prepared, organized, and cared enough to make it at the scheduled hour. The smallest gestures, such as being on time, will always be important. Being fashionably late no longer works for every scenario anymore.
