Chatfield College Top Questions

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


Being a Senior and attending college as a PSEO student currently, I would have to look back at my Freshman year and talk to myself. I have been taking college classes since my Freshman year in high school. Although I started out only taking a few at a time, I have a lot of advice that I could give myself. First, I would try to tell myself that I should not procrastinate. Working on papers and projects when they are assigned is always better than trying to cram at the last minute. I would also tell myself to slow down and enjoy every minute of my education. So often it is easy to get caught up in the day to day drudgery of life and forget to enjoy all of the opportunities in front of you. Finally, I would tell myself to get immersed in the college experience. Join clubs, play sports, write for the college paper. All of that is a lot of fun and you meet some really interesting people. College is a lot of learning, but not everything is learned from the books.
