What is your overall opinion of this school?

The teachers are very attentive and go above and beyond to be accessible to all. Also, the small class sizes make a more efficient learning environment. Here you aren't just a unknown face the teachers are involved and know who you are. In addition, the food services department really do a great job!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great learning experience, it's very hands on and also the people there are likable. The instructors are very easy going and make it easy to learn new things every day . The lab is awesome we get to use a lot of industry materials to get us ready for the real world.

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

If I had to prepare myself for my college career, I would have prepared myself very differently. I didn't know what I wanted to go to school for, so applying for schools and filling out majors got pretty confusing. I ended up blinding signing up for a major that was completely wrong for me. I knew after the first semester that it was not what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I knew it wasn't right but I still didn't know what it was I wanted to do either. If I were the person I am today back when I was in high school, I would tell myself that it is 100% okay to not have a specific goal immediately following graduation. I would tell myself that it is much more important to find something that you are passionate about than having to barely make it through the day doing something you hate. I truly believe that it is possible to love your job and be successful in life if you only take the time to realize what that thing is and go after it with all you have.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

I think the worst thing is that it is so far away from everything, so if I have time in between classes, I have to stay there instead of being able to go somewhere else.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The kind of person that should go to this school is the kind of person who knows what they want to do with their life and want to effectively get it done.

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

Study harder. Actually do your homework. Try. You do NOT want to redo those 14 years of dead end jobs between high school and college. Imagine where you could be by the time you are thirty if you applied yourself in high school and went to college right away instead of waiting until mid thirties to get a career. College (and high school) is rough, but you are a smart young woman. you can be successful if you just put your mind to it.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who doesn't like to study

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

First I want to begin by saying I didn't complete high school I got had a baby at age 16. With that being said I can't tell you what I would say to myself as a senior but I can tell you what I would say to myself as a high school student. If I could go back and talk to myself I would tell myself to stay focuse and listen to my teachers because they are there to help me. I wish that I would have hung around more postive people and I would tell myself to take advantage of all the things that school has to offer especially my sex education class. I would not have taken for grant that I had outstanding teachers who told me that you can make something of your life although I took a the wrong road in life as a child but I am back on track and there are somethings that are hard for me but I will always remember that the choices that I make today will change the path I take tomorrow. I love college I just wish I would have started sooner.

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

If I could go back to High School and give myself advice, I would advise myself to work harder and make better grades. I would have not had my daughter as early as I did, because this has made my overall college experience harder. The lack of extra time for studying and homework while taking care of her. I would have prepared better by applying for scholarships, listened to counselors on what courses i should take, and would have been a better student. Another thingI would have given advice to myself on would be to obtain a job while in school. This would have given me the financial means to purchase the items I need for college. Financial problems create undue stress while working toward the goals set by me and the college. I neglected the most important things I needed. These things included good sleeping habits, healthy diet, exercise, and the peace of mind necessary for learning. I also would not have participated in activites that were unhealthy for my body and my brain. Determination to succeed should have been my goal. Success in high school, leads to success in college, which then leads to success in life.

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

If I could go back in time and talk to my high school self, I would tell myself to be prepared and think things through carefully. I would tell myself to find a part-time job before heading into college. Also I would tell myself that if you dont get a part-time job first then you'll be broke after the first few months of college. Lastly I would tell myself to think things through carefully. I would tell myself to ask questions such as: "Is this what I want?", "Can I afford something like this?", "Will I be willing to keep going even though things get rough?", etc. All of this would I tell myself if I could go back in time and talk to my high school self.

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

As a high school, senior, i would have made the decision to continue schooling straigh out of high school. Waiting as long as I have, has slowed my progress down. Had I continued my education straight out of high school, I could have been finished with my schooling and have a career. Now I have 2 kids and am struggling day to day to make things happen for them. College life now is just tougher trying to study, homework and balance everyday family life. However, with all of that being said, I would not change anything because it has made me who I am today.
