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


I would tell myself to not be afraid of the new people that I'd come in contact with. Instead of going home on weekends, I'd tell myself to just stay on campus and make the effort to hang out with my new classmates right off the bat because it isn't nearly as bad as it seems in the beginning. If you get involved with different activities and try to make friends, you won't get homesick as easily and you'll establish yourself as an independent adult a lot easier. Also, be prepared to get organized. Organization will help you get all of your work done on time and done in an orderly fashion so you don't stress out as much.


If I were to go back in time and tell my Senior-self about college, I would tell 'me' to get a better, higher paying job to have and save for. Instead of spending it right away. I would tell 'me' that my father is going to be a pain because of the Parent Plus Loan but not to fret and look for scholarships asap. Also, I would tell myself that I will not make too many friends and try to seem a little more happy and socialable like i was in high school. Dont be afraid to venture out there. Pay the SPS fee on time asap. I would really make sure I asked for a car earlier in the year so it wouldnt be so difficult to get to and from my school and apartment. Those are some of the main things i would tell myself because those are the things I am having the most trouble with.
