I wish I would of known how difficult it really is when being away from home for the first time. I was very excited when I first came to LSSU, but I didn't realize how hard it would be also. It's almost 4 hours away from my hometown, so I do not go home very much. I miss my family and friends a lot. It has taught me though how to be more independent and also I have become more of my own person.
One thing i wish i knew about college was how important it is to stand on your own. Many people say 'you must know who you are before you leave for school,' yet they dont also tell you how being away from your family can be lonely and it is in those moments you are made or broken.
I dont regret not knowing anything before i came to this school. For me it was a wondeful learning experience i and would rather go and learn about things rather than already know it. It makes it more fun.
I wish I had known how challenging the college courses would be. I also wish I had known some people, but it turned out for the best that i had to socialize.
I wish I had known just how small the school was. Also, I wish I had known the extent of the food variety (there isn't much).
How much fun history classes are and how hard your major would be come Junior and Senior year.
I wish I had known to start my application process and scholarship search earlier.
