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


There will be alot of people that will not support your decision to go to college and there will be some that will support your decision dont let that be your determing factor. Because you have only one class out of eight classes you need to graduate take advantage AP classes you do get college credit dont waste your time and sit in this classes and not taking them serious. Work study is distracting you, you're not even focusing on your school work any more. Appreciate the teachers that sees your potential and are harder on you stop taking the victim role and you it to your advantage it pays off in the end. Get a goal in mind focus on that stop being lazy and apply for colleges, scholarships and grants dont wait until you realize you could have a degree by now to start college. Stop focusing on relationships and friendships that are not align with you short term and long term goals. Make the most of your resources they have set of time for you to focus on college use it to your advantage. Stop procrastinating, time will run out eventually.


If i could go back in time to inform myself of the college life and what it has to offer, I would tell myself to be patient and think things through before making any decisions in life. Before choosing a college, go check it out, analyze what you want and what direction you want to go in, and stick to it. Never stray from your dreams and never let anyone or anything hold you back; perservere. Surround yourself with people who wants to see you succeed as well as succeed themselves. Nothing is ever acheived without putting in the work, you have to earn it. Stay true to yourself and your beliefs. And always remember, if you don't want it for yourself, no one else is gonna get it for you.


If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior, I would say FOCUS and maintain good grades college is No joke and its really hard to enroll in college. The way the world is today effects every action made. You could help by applying early for school, fill out as many scholarships and grant information. Also Stay focus and have a great "I can do it" attitude.


I would tell myself to fill out more scholarship applications so that I wouldnt be bothered with loans right now. I would also tell myself to start being focused now because in college there are many things that will take your attention, but graduating is really the only thing you should be concerned with.
