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


STAY FOCUSED!!! There are so many distractions in college; new environment, meeting new friends, sporting events. It is important to remember all the hard work and sacrifice it took to get to college. It doesn't matter if it is the local community college, studying abroad or across the country. Graduate from college, THEN explore, enjoy yourself, your friends and activities after graduation. This does not mean never to laugh or have a good time, but school comes first. School is why you are there, remember the ultimate goal.
