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


Out of college, I have learned that earning a degree takes hard work. You have to be organized and be able to manage your time. Sometimes work can get frustrating, but you have to stick to it and try your best. Not only do you learn a bunch of new information, but it helps to better yourself. You meet many new, amazing people that could become very important in your life. They will help you through thick and thin and help you through hard times. College also will help you earn a good salary and lead you to the place your meant to be. I know that I will and I have been trying my best to earn good grades. College is a once in a lifetime deal. No one should drop out or not go at all. It's the best time of your life.


If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senoir, I would give myself some advice because of what I know now. As a senior, I didn't know what I wanted as a career. I knew I wanted to go into business but I was not sure what area I wanted to go into. If I could go back and talk to myself, I would tell myself that not knowing what I wanted to be is the best thing I can not know, going into college. I learned a lot in high school about different careers, but in college I learned a lot more, and the more I know, the better the decision I will make. I would also tell myself to never give up; no matter how bad the situation might be, the outcome will be better if you never give up. One of my last pieces of advice to myself would be to take advantage of every opportunity that presents itself. Woody Allen once said, "85 percent of success is showing up." I believe that another 10 percent of success is learning something new. The other 5 percent is hard work.
