Belmont College Top Questions

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


As a senior in high school, I would have told myself to plan carefully for the college life. There are so many aspects of college that need a great deal of planning. The first step in planning for college is to make sure I have to money to get through the semester which can often times be tough. There are books, tuition, and fees that often cost more than expected, so it is a good idea to have the money before hand. The second step in planning for college is choosing which classes need to be taken and how I can work around my work schedule. The third step in planning is studying for my classes as much as needed to exceed my personal goals of passing my classes. The final plan is to have my job interests lined up before I graduate from college. Planning ahead is one of the smartest things I believe I could have done prior to entering college.


I would tell myself to stop procrastinating and buckel down and get homework done on time, I would also tell myself to improve my study habits.


I would tell myself not to let fear hold me back. Attend a college that you want to and enjoy all the experiences. Live in the dorm, explore several areas of interest before determining your major, join some clubs and go to some parties! Have fun while you decide what you want to do with the rest of your life. Meet new people, explore new cultures, and enjoy being young. Once you have found your passion, the career that you WANT to do for the rest of your life, please GO FOR IT!! Study hard, have fun and most importantly live, laugh and love as if there are no tomorrows!!
