Copiah-Lincoln Community College-Natchez Campus Top Questions

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


I would have done what I wanted to do the first time instead of doing something that I didn't want to do. I would go out and get started with my college career instead of following someone else's idea for me. This is your time, so make the best of it and do what you think is best. You are creative, charismatic, and a hard worker, you can do anything you want if you put your mind into it. Going out gor Cosmetology will give you a great success in the future. Go ahead with your plans and get your license and own your own salon. But not just any salon but a salon that has spa therapy, tanning, retail, anything and everything that you have dreamed about.


If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior, knowing what I know now about college life, I would talk to myself about being serious and focusing more on my future. Like every other senior in high school my only priority was to party. I made decent grades but not very good grades. I never really tried; I just always assumed I would get into a good college. Looking back now, and realizing the kind of grades I could have made if I would have just been more serious about my school work, makes me sick. I would definitely try and convince myself to be more serious about school. I never really had my future planed out. I just wanted to go to a big university and party. Now all of that has completely changed and makes me wish I would have figured this out a lot sooner making it easier on me. So if I could go back in time and talk to myself as a senior in high school I would tell myself to be serious and to focus on my future.
