What should every freshman at your school know before they start?


I graduated from high school in 1984, so as a 43 year old, I have often thought of going back in time to talk to myself as a high school senior. The high school I graduated from is a strict Catholic all girls school managed by the Sisters of Mercy. Oh, how I wish that I would have listened more to the sisters. I did not appreciate their wisdom and guidance until I became much older. Unfortunately, I thought that I knew it all, and I could have a good life without going to college. The sisters would counsel us girls, and recommend that we go to a college as careers for women were beginning to blossom in the 1980s. I was recruited to play softball at a university, but chose not to go. I did try to go to a community college, but dropped out before the first semester ended. Knowing what I know now, I would have attended college right out of high school because making the transition from high school to college would have been smoother. I could have lived in a college dormitory where house moms would have encouraged me to study and graduate.
