As some college students go into their last semester, many may find themselves nervous of joining what they call the real world.

Luckily, a few dozen students at Berkeley College's Woodland Park campus were able to get some life lessons from 'The Apprentice' winner and entrepreneur, Dr. Randall Pinkett.

The discussion with Pinkett was streamed online for Berkeley's other campuses around New York and New Jersey.

Pinkett spoke about getting into what he calls the “entrepreneur mindset.” He told stories of his own failures in business, and how to keep from being discouraged.

For the students, most of whom were business majors, they say this advice is priceless. Other students say they still have a little more schooling before graduating. They say they'll take today's lessons and apply it to make their last year into their best year.

Pinkett hosted a signing afterwards of his new book, 'Campus CEO.'

He said it was an honor to be hosted by the college during Black History Month in order to touch upon the topic and help students realize that black history is American history.
