What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?


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.


I wish i would have went to a university first, i wish i knew how hard it would be to transfer out of the college.


I wish that before I came to CPCC that i had taken some college classes at my high school to better prepare for college work. Also i tried a University last semester and did poorly because I was not prepared and had a difficult first semester. I found that living in a dorm with three other girls was also quite difficult because I wasn't used to the living situation.


I wish I had known my first semester that I could be as specific as I wanted about what classes I was interested in taking.
