It is a college that is for just getting into the career path and build your skills to be competitive. The amount of classes are a little long and the school is expensive for the amount of time going to the school. I would recommend this school if you are planning on changing career paths.

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

    It’s 2004 and I am sitting in chemistry class, daydreaming about life after school. Wishing that high school was over, college has not crossed my mind at all. The only thing I am thinking about is leaving Tennessee on the first available means of transportation. Knowing what I know now, the first piece of advice would be to change my mind-set. College seemed so mundane in 2004. I didn’t care about furthering my education at that time. I would tell myself that I am capable of doing and achieving anything I set my mind to, especially attending college. The energy I had put toward getting out of Tennessee would have been better spent trying to go to school. Putting effort into anything you want to do will always result in some kind of positive outcome, especially if college is involved. I’d tell myself to quit dwelling on all the bad situations that have past and concentrate on me and my goals, for once. My last piece of advice would be to not give up and to believe in myself. College is a milestone we all need to experience. You can do it, just try.
