Describe the students at your school.

I have no started the program yet, but I am sure that my future classmates will be great. We all have a common interest of the healthcare profession and are sharing the same goal of becoming a nurse.

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

If I could go back in time and speak with myself as a high school senior I would advise my self to start off college strong and maintain focus. I would encourage myself to put all effort into my schooling, and remember that these four years are going to be the best four years of your life. I know that as a senior in high school four years seems like forever, but they fly by so fast. Don't stress so much about the past and focus on the present. You will meet your closest friends during college and your life will ultimately change. These next four years will be the beginning to determine where you end up in life and as a career. Choose a major that you enjoy and that their is a demand for within the workforce. Do not be afraid to seek help when needed, and remember you can overcome any obstacle.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone that should not attend this school is one that is not willing to learn or put the effort into learning. If you are not looking towards a medical or cosmetic career then this would not be the school for you either. Richmond School of Health and Technology (now known as Chester Career College) is a medical based college and cosmetology. Any student wanting to attend needs to be hard working and dedicated to their school and future profession.

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

Should I be back in the early eighties, there are many things I would tell myself pertaining to school. The first would be to hold onto your integrity with all your strength. There will e temptations to do the wrong things, such as drugs, cheating and lying. The thing about integrity is it is like virginity, once it’s gone, you don’t get it back. Next I would tell myself that no matter how tired you are, don’t miss class. Just like there is no substitute for experience, there is no substitute for being in the classroom. That is really where education and learning happens. Not just academically, but you also will learn socially from interacting with your fellow students. And last but not least, keep up every single day. It’s the only way to keep from things snowballing and becoming overwhelming. Also, make friends with the people that are different.. Don’t worry about parties; they are not why you are there. There will be plenty of parties after you graduate. Do the things that will make your parents proud, even though they are not there telling you what to do. Explore. Be who you are.

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

The advice i would give myself as a senior would consit of a one certain thing. I would tell myself to think carefully about every decision you make because every decision has a result or a consequence. As a senior i wasnt very happy about going to school and didnt necessarily think about how my grades would effect me from highschool to college. I didnt make horrible grades, but if i was to of studied more and taken it more seriously i would of made all A's. When i had my daughter i realized that starting college would be my best option to gaurentee a better life for her. So now as i am one year into college, i am making the grades i wished i would of made in highschool. Of course now my priorities have changed from only thinking of myself to now supporting my child. I realize now that in highschool my decision to not study or even pay attention in class was affecting my grade and how different colleges would view me. But on the bright side of things i grew up and am now making better decisions for myself and my daughter.

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

The premise of going back in time and talking to myself as a high school senior about college and what I know about it now, reminds me of the title of a Rod Stewart song-“ I wish that I knew then, what I know now, when I was younger.” If I could, go back and give myself advice, I would tell myself that it’s easier to make the transition when you’re young and still in a school/study mode. Also, when you think about it two or four more years of school after going twelve years, especially weighing the benefits, is a small price to pay for assuring yourself a rewarding career. Even if you end up going in another direction or doing something else as a career you will always have your education to fall back on. An education is something you can continue and take in any direction you want. And the beautiful thing about it is nothing or no one can ever take it away from you! Another aspect that is an unavoidable consideration is the cost of furthering your education. Tuitions are astronomically more than they were when I graduated from high school.

Knowing what I know now, I would warn myself of the great consequences of dropping out. I was young and unfocused, I would definetly prepare myself that waiting until you are older to join school while maintaining a home and children is so much more complex. Stress how important it is to realize that there is more to life than worrying about the opposite sex and running around playing. Take your life seriously, for tomorrow is not promised.

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

If I could go back in time I would say I turned out to be a strong person. In high school I was an A student who always strive to do her best. It all started my senior year when I had got pregnant with my son. I thought that my life would be ruined, but I held my head up high and did my best. I graduated top of my class with a 3.0 and with honors. That made me proud of myself I knew it was one step away from success. So then my next step was college. When college time started it was time to have my son. I was very upset but my mom told me I would be okay and never give up. So I went through had my son and worked. I had always thought of being a lawyer, teacher, and pharmacy tech. down the road I change my mind to become a Medical Assistant to make a better life for my son and I. I really love the Medical assistant program. I love my life and how it’s becoming. Positive attitude is the key.

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

Dear Niki, I wish I could make this easier for you , or have some exceptionally wise advice but I do not. I know that in the past, things have often come easy for you, but I implore you not to take college so lightly. Understand that in college your attendance, class participation, test grades, and study skills will hold you accountable for your entire time there. The job and the things you choose to do in the future with your college education, will also refer back to all those things as well. With that being said, never be afraid to go after the things you want, even if you think they will be to hard, or to much work. I know that you are capable of great things. Please remember the advice I have given, and you will have a full and happy life.

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

Knowing what you know about college and making the transition what advice would you give yourself?If time could be turned back to Middle School, that is where I made my big mistake .I quit school because I thought being sixteen going on seventeen was a bit too much to be sitting back in ninth grade .Please do not quit school because ‘’A mind Is A Terrible Material to waste “ .Now sitting back thinking about things .If I had listened to my Mother ,My Teacher and myself . I would have graduated with my classmates. It would have been great to walk across the stage to my name being called Terry Barner ‘’ Really, I can see it just as plain as day .I could have already been to college and could be working in good up scale Doctor Office making money doing what I Love to do, being a Medical Assistant. Every year I would take a refresher course in the Medical Field until I have enough credentials to teach a college doing what I love. I would tell myself “Do Not Quit School”. I could be a Professor teaching school in North Carolina, loving it to the fullest

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

If I could go back into time, back to when I was in high school, college would be a little easier for me. In my high school, many teachers spoiled students and did not give us much responsibility. If I could, I would have taken the initiative to do more than what was expected. In my late junior year through my senior year, I would apply to colleges and make sure I was practicing good study habits. Good study habits help make chapters and assignments clearer and easier to understand. I would also take everything and every class assignment seriously. My goal is to become a pediatrician. There were many classes I was not aware I could have taken to lead me on the right road to reach my goal. I would take all the courses to at least have a certificate to add to my resume. Since I was not working a lot during high school, I would have took my leisure time to volunteer at a hospital or somewhere in the healthcare field. I have learned now, many jobs look at volunteering as a plus and it shows a positive side of you.
