I didn't take the whole process very seriously, and missed scholarship application deadlines, and I just didn't really try. If I could go back, then I would apply to many, many more scholarships and would have tried to go to a university instead of a community college. I feel like I would have a better experience at a university, and would have been able to make a lot more friends easier. I regret not taking things as seriously as I should of, and I learned my lesson. I should have pushed myself to do what it took to go to the school I have always wanted to go to.
I do not like the size of the school and want to be at a university because being from out of state when I first started, it was harder to make friends with people since most already went to high school together. Plus, I just like bigger classes in general.

Many of the students at CPCC are from all different backgrounds. Some, like me are there right out of high school. Others are a bit older and have come back for a higher education. Some people want to be there while others would rather be somewhere else entirely. But if I would have to describe the students at CPCC I would say that they are mature. My classmates at Central Piedmont are all there for an education, they dont cause disruptions and trouble in the class rooms; they are simpliy there to learn.
If I were to go back I would tell myself that it's going to be really tough at first. Class schedules will be confusing, you'll get lost a few times and it'll be hard to make friends at first. But you just need to be strong and know that things will get better. Dont be afraid to go to club meetings or speak up in conversations. Its ok to be unsure about things, but dont let it get in your way of moving forward. Lifes journey is just beginning, its ok to take it easy and get your footing before you continue. Theres a long road ahead and its important to not stress too much about it and just enjoy life in the moment.
The worst thing about my school would have to be the system for turning in work. When ever something has to be turned in online it always has to be at midnight. This was hard for me since I wouldnt get off of work until 11:30-11:45pm. If I didnt have the work done early enough it would be turned in late or incomplete. I would have made things easier if the work was due befire class began. If the school had done that it may have been a little easier for other students and myself.

My classmates are enthusiastic, respectful, and eagar to learn and succeed; their determination and hardwork creates an acceptional learning environment, as well as an intellectually and academically stimulating one.

"Don't change a thing." The challenging experiences that I endured and brought upon myself since high school have molded me into a revolutionist. My scholastics were in turn put on hold, but during this time I became educated in the courses of life. I am seasoned with the knowledge of the struggle to survive. The freedom of college students demands time management and responsibility. Everyone develops differently, and this process determines our futures. Adversity developed me into the adult I had to be to recognize my purpose in the biochemical/physical and nutrition fields. I'm a dreamer of excellence, and I believe it starts and ends with nourishing, not poisoning, our bodies. The many evils of our world have consistently drawn our attention away from the most detrimental one: disrespecting our bodies. The exponential growth of our population has pushed our industries into mass production of the cheapest "food" products that can be manufactured and it is killing us. The obesity epidemic is a result of our relationship with these "foods." We are addicts, and I was an addict once too. The constant battle with a process that is necessary for life is deep, but I can help.

Central Piedmont Community College has multiple campus that each have their own unique personalities and qualities, but all are welcoming and offer many valuable resources to students.
The advice I would give myself about college life and making the transition includes better planning, build a relationship with staff, make friends before you get to campus, and become familiar with the area. I was definitely unprepared my first day! I didn’t have lunch or any snacks, so I was hungry all day. That hunger was a distraction from listening to the professors as they went over syllabi. I also had to stand in multiple long lines because I didn’t get my ID, bus pass, or books ahead of time. Secondly, I would tell myself to build relationships with staff early. The people on campus are there to help you, so the earlier they get to know you, the more they’ll be able to help you. Also, I would tell myself to build relationships with other incoming students. You will feel much more comfortable if you have a familiar face in one of your classes, someone to sit with at lunch or between classes. Lastly, become familiar with the area surrounding your campus. Not only will that ensure your safety, but you will know more resources to help you succeed. Good luck!
Any person that is dedicated and willing to learn should attend this school.

i have not yet experienced classmates in a classroom environment in college yet because i have not yet started my classes in school.
Hindsight is 20/20. If I could go back in time to high school and tell my self information that would help me get through high school and to be beneficial for college, my number one thing would be to form good study habits and to not procrastinate. My study habits are not the worst but they definately could be better. I would tell myself to study more because studying more has made my life so much more easier in college and looking back in highschool i caould have just spent an hour a day and my grades would have chancged dramatically. I would tell my self not to procrastinate because procrastinating in college could be the death of you and you do not want to be behind at all. In highscool I was always stressed out over work because i put it off until the last second and now that I dont and try and get my work done as soon as I get it and life is just easier because you do not have to worry about assignments all the time.
Well since i have not started my classes yet for this semester other than an online class i have not experienced to much about CPCC. I have had some experience withe the advisors at CPCC though. They are very helpful people and they show that they do in fact care about you and your education.

CPCC is a very informative, helpful school, the people are nice and the environment is very clean, I really enjoy attending this college.
I would have told myself to never take that college break. Even though it might seem like a good idea, you will just be putting yourself behind in life. I would have also told myself to be better with your credit and to save money, because going to college has a huge opportunity cost when it comes to your time and finances. And last but not least to just hang in there, that it will all be worth it in the long run.

Upon graduating high school in May of 1999 I joined the US Navy. If I could do things over I would have went to college. The advice I would give myself is that a college education is very important. Everyone wants to make money and having the knowledge is power and will allow anyone to earn a higher income. Take the time to study. Dont rush the process, research a good accredited university or community college and attend, its many for profit schools that costs thousands of dollars and aren't accredited. Research scholarship and grants, avoid student loans unless absolutely necessary. Prioritize all daily tasks to be organized which will lead to success! Meet friends and don't be afraid to ask for help when needed.
I think the school is very diverse. I'm a working adult student and attend school with younger students. Their is various ethnicities as well, which makes for a better learning expierence!

Central Piedmont Community College has an excellent Global Learning Program. Though this institutions's program I earn college credits towards the NC Global Scholars of Distinction Honor. This program has helped my development personally and academically. I have studied abroad to Slavador Brazil. I studied abroad in Costa Rica through a cosortium with a neighboring community college and I plan to to study abroad in Tanzania and in one or two countries before I graduate next year. This was an excellent opportunity for me to become globally concious. My global experience is preparing me for diversity in the work place.

If I have another opportunity to be a high school senior, I would have a lot of advises to share to myself. However, there is one advice I think that would have helped me better prepare for college, and it is to challenge myself more academically. In my senior year, I was often afraid of failures and rejections. For instance, I only applied for one scholarship in my senior year because I thought applying for scholarships were too competitive, and there were many students out there that are better scholarship candidates than I was. However, had I believed I could do it, I would have probably figured out the steps I need to take to help me win these scholarships that I wanted to apply. Even if things had not worked out as I planned, I would have not being disappointed at myself because I knew I have given it my best shot. Therefore, knowing how to deal with challenges is beneficial for anyone who wants to make the transition from high school to college because being afraid of dealing with challenges often prevents people from getting to where they want to be both in school and in life.
I wish I knew that it was possible for me to take college courses at this college as a high school student before I came to this school. Because I was born in Vietnam, I did not speak or understand much English in most of my high school years. As the result, I did not know that it was possible for me to take college courses as a high school student. If I would have taken some college courses while I was high school, I would have saved me some extra time and money for college.
The most frustrating thing about my school is that I keep seeing students driving around my school with very loud music on. These students are not only drive their cars around the school once. They usually circle around the school for three to five times before they leave everytime. I do understand that people could enjoy their music as loud and as much as they wish; however, i personally think it is quite disrespectful for them to distract those students who need quiet time to learn and study at my school.
