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


I wish I had known how much the teachers care for their students , and how much I should push myself . I didn't do as well as I could have during my first semester. Yet , I still got alot of support from my teachers and staff members at my school . If I pushed myself, as much as they pushed me to do well , I would have done much better.


I wish I had known that I really needed to kick my studying into gear from day one.


I wish I had known how small it would feel, and how much drinking is a part of the atmosphere. I do drink, but not a huge amount, and sometimes not as much as I feel like this school calls for. I also wish I had realized how many people are from nearby, and how far away from home I would feel. I'm ok with it now, but when I was a freshman it was really difficult to be so far from home in such a small town.
