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


If i were able to go back in time and talk to myself i would tell myself to study harder, pay closer attention and speak out more. I would tell myself college isn't as difficult as it sounds and it is not as scary as i thought it was. I would push my self to apply for more scholarships and tell my self not to procrasinate. If i could go back i would tell myself to believe that i can acomplish anything i set my mind to and not to listen to thoughs who would try and make me think other wise.


I have thought about this since I graduated from high school eight years ago. I would like to tell myself that instead of taking a year off from school, I should register and attend in the fall after graduation because it will become easier to put off college year after year and if she waited like I did, it would be seven years before she attended her first year of college. I would also tell myself not to skip class thinking that since I was a senior I could do anything because I was graduating. The truth is I barely graduated because of attendance. My grades were good but due to attendance policies I came really close to not graduating at all and that would have been humiliating.
