I would say my school is best known for being in the center of Columbus. Columbus State is a very popular community college that is fastly growing. I think this school is really just known for being a successful community college that gives many people in the community a greater opportunity for a higher education.
If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior I would tell myself to prepare for a great change in my life. I would tell myself about some of the differences between high school and college such as the testing differences, the professors, and the expensive books! I would tell myself that I really need to take college serious and work as hard as I possibly can. I also would tell myself that there are many different types of people who all learn in different ways and that I should use this to my advantage because the greatest way of learning is from someone else. Last I would tell myself to never give up because that is not the way to finish, I have explore my life and really figure out what I want to do with and in my future.
I think the kind of person who shouldn't attend this school is really just anyone who is not prepared for college. Some of the people I've come acrossed do not work hard enough, they just expect to pass without even doing anything. This school really is good for anyone who wants to further thier education. They have small classes which makes it a lot easier to get individual attention.

Do not wait. Life still happens when you don't plan for the future. As a senior in high school I was returned to my mother after living in a foster home. I made some unwise decisions and graduated high school pregnant. I decided to work instead of attending college. I had no idea it would be ten years before I would find the time and energy to return. The transition was not an easy one. Being a single mother of three children made time a luxury I could not afford. After years of working two jobs to support my family, I decided I needed an education in order to break the cycle of always working. I wish I could have known how hard life is without an education. I would like to go back and show myself how hard my life would be without the neccasary skills to advance in my career. I now have a great example for my children as to why they need to go to college. I wish I could go back and show myself.
The best thing about my school is the distance learning programs. I am able to work full time, take care of my three children and mother, and attend college full time on my own schedule. Life often would prevent me from attending scheduled classes so Columbus State was the best choice in my current life situation. My children love to visit campus with me and I'll admit I snuck in a history lesson when we saw the statue in the courtyard.
College is hard. It is not something to take lightly. It is a wonderful yet terrifying experience. In returning to school after ten years you realize all your learning skills are rusty. I wish I had taken refresher courses to better prepare myself upon entering college. I wish I had known what a rewarding experience this is. My first quarter ended with a 4.0 GPA. What a rush to be able to motivate my children to strive for excellance.

The value is great. Tuition is much lower at CSCC than any other state school in Central Ohio. The advising services were superior to those I received at a major state university. There is a huge selection of majors for a community college as well, and also lots of transfer agreements with four year schools.
If I went back in time to 2004 and visited myself as a high school senior, my former self would probably be quite shocked that I am still in college, especially as an undergraduate. I would explain I would change a few minor details but my journey would be the same. If my former self asked me what I would do differently, I would tell her that I would have taken post secondary classes at the community college to save money, and I would have spent a little bit more time studying freshman year. However, I would still choose Ohio University and the brick paved streets of Athens, Ohio, the books of the History Department and the debates of Political Science. I would still pledge a sorority and study abroad. People say that college is about getting a job upon graduation. Since graduation I have decided to change fields and pursue a nursing career and am attending a community college, but those years of college were not wasted time. College was how I finally figured out who I am, and how to pursue my dreams. College is a journey, not just a destination.
The worst thing about CSCC is that a lot of times the instructors are really just glorified high school teachers. These instructors treat adult students like teenagers and show little consideration for one's commitments to work and family, not just school. In addition, this type of instructor is known to have be unfamiliar with new technology and the wonders of powerpoint lectures.

The class size is smaller than most schools of its size and it has the lowest cost per credit hour in the area. Also on the public bus lines. The students are actually taught by teachers many of which also work in their fields that they teach about. For example my geology teacher is also a land surveyer. The campus is the perfect size so one does not have to trek halfway across the city to get to class. We also get a large age range from people fresh out of high school to adults returning for a second career.
Since I was in PSEO for my senior year I would have to start when school had just begun. First I would tell myself not to take any online classes since I learn better by hearing and need the structure. It is always important to consider how you learn best when deciding on what form of classes you are going to take and how you are going to study. Second would be to work hard and not slack off since all years of high school are important. It is also important to take the big classes like calculus in high school so you do not have to start at the bottom levels in college. Take a 4th year of High School science whether you're required to or not.; ti pays off. Remeber to treasure what time you have left. When you start college you have to start worrying about life as weel. It is best to have a job already and are saving up money for the school, book and other costs. Finally apply for every scholarship and grant you qualify for. You will need the money and unlike a loan you don't have to pay it back.
The classes are small and the teachers are great. In the event you get a bad teacher there is a student class survey near the end of the quarter that is handed out to the students to fill out and give their opinion. Also there are usally many offerings of the same class if it is a core class and there are online and hybrid options to fit any schedule. Finally the cost is the lowest in the area if not the whole state so I can actually afford to go to school.

My school is best known for being a 2-year college.
If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior, I would tell myself to take college slow, to ease into it because as much as it may not seem like a huge change, it is. I would tell myself NOT to cut class in college, because even though you won't get in trouble, it'll come back and bite you in the butt when you get your grades. I would also tell myself not to overwhlem myself by taking too heavy of a course load because college can get very stressful. I would reccomend taking 1-2 online courses because as long as you have the discipline, it creates a nice balance. Lastly, I would remind myself to get there early each day, because parking is one of the most stressful parts of college life.

My school is difficult and they also care but not to the point that they want to help they just think it is written in stone . The rules I mean.
I would tell everyone DON'T WAIT. Go as soon as you graduate it is that important. It all is fresh in your brain abnd you are still in the school habit. There are alot of people that think that you should take a break after school but that isn't the case. You need to go as soon as you graduate go that fall and get it over with. Don't wait like I did and now regret not going when you have the chance.
I think that a self motivated person should attend. Due to the fact that it is an online college and there is no campus to attend.

To give my heart and soul to my education. There would be not one thing that was more important than my education. To help strengthen my country's future I should put everything I have into this education. There is no greater joy on earth than to be greatly educated. In order for America to compete in this world we must become highly educated.
The best thing is the education. I feel as if I am really learning alot. They offer several options for classes to fit my schedule. The instructors bring alot of experience and knowledge.
I wish I would of know how accessable my education was. The fact that I can juggle a son with autism, a job, and an education all at the same time.

I have gone back in time to talk to myself in my senior year about the things that I know now about the transition from high school to college. The first thing that I would tell myself is to start filling out college, scholarship applications, and start preparing letters for grants. The longer you wait the longer it will take to get responses. College is the start to your career path and if you don?t take it seriously you are going to miss out on so many things. Going to college will make it a whole lot easier when it comes to getting a job. Now you may already have a job but think about how much money you are making. You?re a cashier at a grocery store making minimum wage which is at 5.15 an hour. Now imagine having a job making 11, 15, or even 25 dollars an hour. That is enough money to start a family. Well my time here is coming to an end I just wanted to leave you with a parting thought going to college is the path for you so you don?t have to struggle to make ends meet.
The best thing about my school is that there are other places that I can go to take classes as well as do other things that involve school. So, no matter where I am I can do the things that need to get done and I do not have to live on campus or have to go to campus to take classes. I am able to take calsses online and on campus as well.
Well I am not one to complain about something that has been given to me as an opportunity to better myself. I really do not have anything to complain about except maybe that we need more classes availiable online as well as maybe a few more parking places. Other than the things that I have mentioned I do not have any problems with my school.
My school brings people from different backgrounds and age in a comfortable class setting.

If I could go back to the past and talk with my senior self, I would of told my self to be more prepared. Now that I am paying for my classes and taking out loans, I would tell my slef to research more about scholarships. Not only that, but also research different schools. I know at that time I didn't know how to do all these things, but that was what the high school counselor was for. She was there to help you with all the college related questions. It didn't matter if I went to her office every day and asked her many questions, she was there to help me, and I should have used her knowlege on college/scholarship search. If I would have done that, I might have been able to be living a better college life today.
Students who don't know what they want to do or people who want to re educate themselves should come to this school.

My classmates are the true meaning of the melting pot. They are all from different backgrounds, races, age and education levels. However, we all have the same educational goal.
Patty, Listen to me and learn. Do not wait till your out of high school to start thinking about your future. The future slips by without us even realizing it. Start planning your career and educational goals as soon as you get into high school. Keep your grades up and look into types of funding early. Talk to your school counselors and listen to their advise. Become active in your school and community. Don't just waste your time away sitting at home doing nothing. Be open to new things and people. I know its hard for you to be around new people, but you should work harder to come out of your shell. College will offer you many opportunities to be active with others. Coming out of your shell now will make it so much easier. I know that the whole process can be a bit over-whelming if you wait and try to do everything that needs done all at once. So start early so that you can break the process down into easy to handle steps. Lastly, remember that you have many people willing to help you, LET THEM.
The most frustrating thing about Columbus State Community College is that there are times when the campus seems huge. It was easy for me to get lost when I first visited the school.
