Columbia College Hustle

I think it’s time for me to come up with a new mantra. I mean, it can’t hurt to have words to go back to that will drive and inspire you. At first I was thinking of something like “Keep it Real” however, that’s so early 2000’s. Then I batted around “The Right Stuff” but that made no sense. Then it came to me. Ever since the Oscar’s, I’ve been haunted by an image of a balding Christian Bale wearing a fat 70’s tie. The film is called American Hustle, with hustle being the operative word. As filmmakers, that’s what we do…hustle. So my new mantra is “Columbia College Hustle.”

Columbia College Hustle

Hustling is one of the things I admire most about Columbia College Chicago students. They don’t wait. They make opportunities.
