Brown Mackie College-North Canton Top Questions

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


If I could go back in time and have a conversation with myself as a high school senior, I would tell myself that it is so important to stay focused and dedicated. I would tell myself that even though I would soon be having a complicated pregnancy, to keep up with my courses, don't give up. I would also tell myself how hard it is to give up and walk away from your dream. I have put college on the back burner since my son was born. While I love him very much, I wish I would have pushed forward so that it didn't feel like such a starting over process for me. Mostly, I would tell myself that no matter what, hold my head high. I would remind myself that everything happens for a reason, and that I am proud of everything I have accomplished. Anything is possible if you breathe and look ahead instead of being scared. Dream big, because life is full of so many ever changing possibilities. I would only hope that my high school age self would heed my own advice.


The advice I would give myself, as a high school senior, would be to fill out as many scholarships you can get your hands on, take more classes that relate to your major, and do not take any knowlegde. I wish I would have listened to my guidance counsler, family, and teachers when they said that your senior year will fly by and take the opportunity to fill out as many scholarships as possible. Another piece of advice, I would give myself is to take anatomy and physiology instead of physics, college algebra instead of precalculus, and possibly take a computer class. I wish I could go back and tell myself to pay closer attention and study another thirty minutes. I wish I could go back and tell myself this advice. Whenever I have the chance to talk to someone in the high school shoes I tell them to grab everything you can now because it will benefit you later.
