My classmates at LSCC are very friendly and nice and with the small class sizes everybody gets to know each other and are there for help when needed.

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

When I left high school I knew that I wanted to go to college. All through out high school it was a breeze and didn?t require much studding. Even the teachers in high school warn you that college will be very difficult. If I could truly go back in time the first thing I would tell my self is hit the books hard. I would tell myself that if I don?t study hard and pass my classes the first time around I?m going to be stuck in school for much longer than I want. Next I would tell myself to pick a major early on and not procrastinate about it. I would of course hint towards the medical field to help my past self pick what I eventually did. The last message I would leave with myself is no matter what aim to finish school and get good grades. Without the good grades you will lose your scholarships easily and will have to work really hard to get them back if even possible. I?m sure the past me with this advice would go on to college with a strong mind like I have now.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

someone who thinks since it a small community college that it will be easy and not take it seriously.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

I really don't think that there's a single distinguishing factor that sets this college apart from any other, aside from it's location. However, there's nothing special about the location of the school either.

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

I would assert that going to the community college is a mistake, and attending it thus would render myself completely lackadaisical and sorrowed. It would have been a blessing if I had the chance to tell myself to slave everyday for scholarship money, so that I might attend a University outside of the area, and outside of the community college degree of education found at the school I had attended. I would also recommend to myself to pursue true happiness, while at the same time pursuing my education, as the two go hand-in-hand according to my tastes. Most importantly, I would tell myself not to be afraid of leaving the state, that in fact, it would be less of a task than having to deal with the crumbling state of affairs found at the college I had the displeasure to attend. More to the point, it is imperative that I knew the true nature of the school and the true nature of myself.

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

I would say, ?Rebekah, go ahead and take a chance on attending college; try something new you are afraid of doing. The worst that could happen would be to take a class and find out it was not what you wanted to do after all. Stop worrying about a bridge you have yet to reach because by the time it is in sight, believe me, it will not look so scary. Take the first step sooner rather than later as the longer you wait the harder it becomes to take that first step. Get involved in student organizations so you can get scholarship money and make friends, plus you will gain valuable leadership experience. You are your own best advisor. Read the college catalog in order to get familiar with all they offer and all their policies, it will save you time and headaches later on. Above all else, don?t let fear keep you from attempting the seemingly impossible. If you let fear keep you from your dreams, it will stalk and haunt you the rest of your life and keep you from discovering potential fulfillment and true happiness as a person.?

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I had known how achievable it is to get a degree; it is so easy to get in and get into classes. Also, I wish I had known earlier how many scholarships they offer especially for student positions like student government, newspaper editor and school photographer. I found out the hard way that academic advisors are great but if you read the catalog fully you will probably know more than they do and get into less complications later. If the advisor tells you something then get it in writing so you have proof of what they advised you.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Any person, from the 16 year-old dual-enrolled high school student, to my 19 year-old brother who is good at math but not sure what he wants to do, to myself who has worked a job for many years and is now going to college, to the 50 year-old single mother who needs to go back to school. This school is good for those people like me who may not have much self-confidence in the college department to be able to gain it in a slower-paced, student-friendly environment.

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

The advice I would give myself as a high school senior is to never give up. Life isn't going to slow down for you and you need to step up to the plate. Create your own world involving people that will allow you to establish a concrete foundation. Don't be afraid to ask questions in class or talk to conselors. If you learn to be open and want to achieve a dream then this will open many doors for your educational experience. Part of college is the ability to not be afraid when you don't understand something. If you learn at a early age, then life in college will be rewarding. Meeting new people and staying open to new opportunities will make the switch to college easier and allow you to make friends and know your instructors.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school is the wide range of stability. It is affordable and located near by where I can have a feel of what area I would like to study. The faculty are very helpful and create assurance for their students. The environment is warming and inviting allowing the ease to ask, respond, and ellaborate within discussions. It has a university feel and creates the need to want an education. To make this simple the best thing about my school is that it has trusted faculty that provide an excellent education with what resources they possess.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

The kind of person that shouldn't attend this school, are the people who dont want to make something out of their lives. It is not about who or what kind of individual you are, but the ability to create your own space wanting to achieve something for yourself.

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

If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior, there are several things I would mention. Most importantly, I would discuss the fact that college is all about what you make it. There isn't going to be anyone there that will force you to do anything ,such as homework and coming to class. It is ultimately your decision and you should make the best of it. Another thing I would tell myself is that college is something to be taken seriously. I don't believe it is very smart to spend valuable time and effort to get into a college when all one wants to do is play around. If you want to make the best out of your education, go to class, be willing to learn, and do anything possible to further yourself.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

Before coming to Lake-Sumter Community College, I was very familiar with the school. To this day, I don't have many complaints. I wish the school was a little bigger, but overall it is a great college.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Lake Sumter is a versatile school meant to feel as welcoming as it is diverse, with respect to several different degrees while maintaining the respectable image of a higher education institution.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Lake-Sumter is best known for it's title as the little "Harvard by the Highway" for it's upper level education in such a culturally influenced community.

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

If I could go back and give myself advice as a high school senior, I would stress the importance of maintaining self-motivation, hobbies, and voluntary extra-curricular activities such as helping out local charities. They will all be invaluable in college as vital tools for success with the courses, scholarships, and career applications, not to mention peace of mind. I would also tell myself not to accept the fourty-three hour per week, full time management position I was offered just after I'd started a term of seventeen credit hours.

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

I would love to go back in time to when I was still sitting in my math class wating for the bell to ring. All through high school the most important thing was hanging out with your friends and going out to the movies on Friday night. I wish I could go back and tell myself to start researching careers and setting goals in my head. Once I graduated high school, I was clueless on why I was going to college, and once I got there, what I was trying to accomplish. I wasted too much time and money in college because I had no dirrection. I went from trying to become a nurse, to a law major, to studying physical therapy, and now I finally plan on becoming a business major. I wish I researched different majors in high school so that I would have some sort of an idea of what I was there to accomplish, and in turn saved a rediculous amount of money and time, which is so precious these day.

What kind of person should attend this school?

People that enjoy having one on one time with their teacher should definitly attend this school. Since Lake-sumter is such a small school, it has less students, which in turn means the professor will be able to know your name and keep a closer look on your progress.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

I attend the South Lake Campus in Clermont, it a beautiful campus with a brand new library. The school is very big and well kept. I love this school because it is so close to home and I can ususally schedule the classes I need when it is convenient for me.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

I would say that my school is best known for having great professors as well as many classes and times to choose from. It is easy to fit classes in around work anf family.

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

If I could go back in time and talk to myself while still in Highschool there are so many things I would say. The number one thing I would stress would be the importance of my grades in school. If I regret anything now it is the fact that I am very smart and was capable of getting much better grades than I did. There are so many scholarships that I could have gotten and would have made going to college so much easier. When you are in Highschool you might not realize how important college will be to you. I took some time off after highschool then it hit me one day that I was wasting time! If I would have gone straight to college I would be done by now! I am 22 years old and almost done with my 2 years or pre-requisites for nursing. I have also realized now how much I really enjoy going to school. It is not what I expected it to be back then. It is much different when you are able to study the things you are interested in, and when you feel like you are working towards something.

It is a very student-orienated and community involved.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Known for the highest graduation percentage of students with AA or AS degrees. and They also have the highest graduation percentage for students with AA or AS degrees going on to get a BS or BA degree.

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

I would tell myself that if you aren't responsible in high school, then you are going to get confused and overly stressed out in college. You have to pay attention cause the teachers don't tell you to turn in the homework the next day. You are suppose to look at the syllabus and know when stuff is do.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

My school is not only a great learning environment with small classroom sizes and professors who care about the student's, but it's always great in the fact that it looks out for the students first, everything else comes second.

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

The most important advice I would give myself is get help if you need it. There is absolutely no shame in needing somebody to work with you one-on-one on something you do not understand. Most college's have tutor's available in the library or learning center. Most professor's are also avaible to give help should you need it. It is much better to get help with a project or math problem than to fail the class. The person who does not get help , and is struggling the whole semester just barely making it, is actually is the one who should be hanging their head in shame. Every person has so much potential, but sometimes it takes another person to bring it out of them.

What's unique about your campus?

I consider the best thing about my school to be the classroom size. Most of my classes have less than 40 students each. With smaller classes, professors can spend more time on the individual needs of the students. I have received much one on one time with my professors and it has helped me tremendously.
