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


Since having graduated high school in 2006, I have gone back and forth between attending college and taking time off. I was determined to figure out just what it was I wanted to major in without pouring countless hours and pennies into classes that I wasn't sure about, or that I wasn't interested in. Six years later, I have finally decided that I would like to focus on health and wellness. I do not, however, credit my ability to have finally made a decision to the fact that I gave myself so much time to think, and avoid a necessary financial burden. If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior, I would tell myself that transitioning into college life is what you make of it. Even though you may not know what to do with your life, stick with it and push forward relentlessly and fearlessly if not but for the college experience where one often meets interesting people, and reshapes their own character in a positive way. I would tell myself to readjust my outlook, and to employ all resources possible in order to receive the needed financial assistance.
