Dalton State College Top Questions

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?


I wish that i had been more involved in high school just so I was intimadated to join more activities and clubs on campus. I also wish that I had taken the SAT more than once because I did not put a large focus on it and the SAT effects alot of my college career.


I wish I had known more about the school. I wish when I decided to go there I would have tried to find something that I could do instead of just going for class and going home. Next semester I plan to look into more about student activites on campus so that I can get involved.


Before I came to this school, I wish I'd better understood how to use the school resources, like the library and the gym. There's practices in both places that are extremely useful, but I had to find out through a trial-and-error processs.


If there was one thing I could have told my high school counterpart it would be that procrastination is not the key. In high school it might be easy to get away with, but college teachers are not as lenient. Also, study even if you think you do not have to. It does not have to be a lot just skim your notes once maybe twice a day. This will help you prevent cramming from that ever nagging procrastination problem. Follow these guidelines and I can guarantee your college experience will be much easier.


I knew coming into Dalton State everything to expect and what was expected of me!
