L Let’s Explore Tips on How to Succeed in College
Since 2011, I’ve been involved with college students – and here’s the common denominator: Everyone is getting a fresh start in life. So, if you’re feeling anxious and timid – don’t worry. I’ll catch you up quickly on what you need to know to be successful.
At Tips to Starting College, I teach you the basic fundamentals of being successful in college to put you in a position where you can thrive.
Tips to Starting College is a resource run by me, Christine Reidhead, to teach you proven strategies to starting college and maximizing your opportunities. I have experienced college as a student and also as a professor.
I graduated with my bachelor’s degree in elementary education and master’s degree in accounting and went to work for an amazing tribal college in New Mexico. Ten years later, I love it even more. I am a Business Professor, Business Department Chair and Faculty Vice-President.

During Christine's professional career, she has used her academics to gain several roles in the field of education, starting in 2011, she began working as an Accountant with Navajo Technical University.
This position opened the door for her to then serve as a Director of Athletics, Wellness Center Manager and Contracts and Grants Manager with the same university.
Today, she now works as the university's Assistant Professor of Business and Program Manager for the Department of Transportation Grant.
Alongside these roles, Christine serves her own nonprofit organization, AfrikRising, which provides critical resources to the children of Africa who face starvation, educational limitations, and health disparities.
Whether it is in her own local community or multiple populations across the world, it has always been her desire to help others, especially children. Following this desire, Christine currently sits on the Board for Habitat for Humanity and Family Promise of Albuquerque.
She also hosts her own podcasts which focus on nonprofits, advocacy, the Tribal College Movement and sports talk. Outside of this and her career, she works tirelessly in serving as a positive example for her two amazing sons. It is her mission to make for certain that they always know the importance of education and feel the joy of helping those who need it most.
