Highland Community College-Freeport Top Questions

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


If I could go back in time and talk to myself in high school I would tell myself things that wouldn't change what college I would attend but that things I would say would change the mindset that I have now. I would start off by telling myself not to worry about college because it will be amazing. Second I will tell myself to forget my high school crush because I do not need anything hindering my studies. Third study, study, study, don't procrastinate doing homework and make sure not to forget any homework. Write everything down so that it isn't forgotten. The most important thing that I would tell myself would be to make friends, don't be shy and just be myself. I will need friends and I can't be afraid to talk to people just because of what I think they might think. I would tell myself never to give up and always keep a clear and level head.
