James Sprunt Community College Top Questions

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


Procrastination will be your biggest enemy and time management will not be your friend if you don't stay on top of things. High school is a little to a lot easier than college. College can be demanding and very unforgiving! Always remember that play is important, true, but you should always work twice as hard as you play. You are in college to get an education. Anything you do in college short of that can wait and is second priority. You are paying your institution thousands of dollars. Make every moment count! Oh, and make sure to buy a short/small umbrella to have with you all the time! The sun can be unforgiving and the rain random! You will thank me later!


If I could back to when I was a high school senior my best words of advice would be to study more and play less, just to slow down. I did not take school very seriously and was so ready to be grown and waited to come back to college after I have started my family and I think it limits me a little, definitely my family is the drive I needed I just wish I had gone to college immediately after high school.
