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


It is September of my Freshman year, and even though I just graduated in June, I would tell my high school self not to be afraid of moving forward, taking risks, and doing things differently than everyone else. I was nervous (and honestly a bit embarrassed) in moving between high school and college because I was following a less academic path than many of my friends and seeking an "alternative" type of education. Somehow this made me feel less successful and less hopeful about my future. Now with a few weeks of classes complete, however, I realize I am happy with my choice of path and that I have clear career goals that align with my passion. I am proud of the choices I have made, proud of myself for staying my course despite those who questioned it, and I look forward with excited anticipation to my future. My month of hindsight has taught me that the hype of the transition from high school to college was actually harder to deal with than living through it.
