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

    If it were possible for me to go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior, I would definitely tell myself to be prepared. I would make sure that I knew how much effort I would have to put forth in order to be successful in college. I would make myself start putting in twice the amount of time spent in class, at home studying. I would be a lot more serious about my decisions and study all of the majors/career choices that I was debating on a little more in-depth. I wouldn't of taken the transition so lightly and would have prepared myself so that I wouldn't make the same mistakes my freshman year of college as I did in high school.
