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


There are three main things you can do over the summer to help prepare for college. One is to read one or more of the books on the first year of college and getting ready for freshman year. Two, many colleges will offer study courses or student-success courses your first semester or during summer orientation. I highly recommend you take a course like this. Third, do an honest self-appraisal of your strengths, weaknesses, and goals for your first year of college. What areas do you think you might struggle with? What are your stressors? How might you deal with those stressful times? Thinking these things through and coming up with a game plan for yourself is one of the best ways to manage your future. There will be many temptations in college which can get you off course, but if you keep true to the golden rule of all things in moderation, you'll make life as easy as possible.


If my circumstances were different at the time, I would have gone to college.I did apply to college, however, at the time there were 7 of us living at home(siblings) both parents were working 2 jobs and I also took a job when I graduated High School, to help bring income to the household to help my parents, then I moved out and continued to supplement their needs while maintaining my own household. That was 30 years ago, and since then I've raised a family of my own and sent 2 of the 5 to college and my wife went back to school 14 years ago and got her degree in social services and enjoys a wonderful career helping less fortunate individuals with disabilities. I decided it was my turn to further my education and since I was probably one of the first to own a PC ( an IBM PC Jr.) and have always been intrigued by computers it makes sense to pursue an IT job, since all the money magazines point to computers as the career with the greatest potential it was a no -brainer. I would really appreciate your consideration for this scholarship. Thank You
