Lindsey Wilson College Top Questions

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


When you go off to college don't be afraid. Don't be afraid of what people think about you. Don't be afraid of those with different viewpoints than you. Don't be afraid to be spontaneous and be social. Don't be afraid to put yourself out there. All of these fears only limit you are your potential. You have to be ready to take a chance and take a leap of faith in order to succeed in life. You have no reason to fear failure because the worst thing to happen is you will fall. Falling is only terrifying if you have no one to catch you or help you back up. Therefore, you have no reason to be afraid. You have so many friends and family surrounding you who love and charish you. Most of all you have your Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, looking after you the whole way. He is your rock and will never leave you. You are only given what you can handle, and with Him you can handle anything. So listen to my words and take them to heart. Don't be afraid to take a chance and live.


To myself, The future choices that I am about to make are going to change my life. I will grow more in these five years than I did actually growing up. I will learn to help people and how to listen to those in need. In order to do this, I need to change a few things. First, study harder, just because who got by high school does not mean college is the same, and it will require more. Second, prepare for the transition of living on your own. Earning money and paying bills while in college is difficult once you go to two colleges full time and only one job full time. Times will be tough and hard, but when you are on the other side looking back like I am, it is all worth it. Even if I could make those changes, I don't think I would change, for I will/have become a better person through my college years, and still have some more growing to do while I finish my college career. It is an amazing journey and it will fly by, just make sure to enjoy the little things in life. Brandon (2014)


I wouldn't be so scared going in! Everything is so different than I imagined it would be. I expected big, scary upperclassmen and constant stress and it isn't like that at all! I wouldn't worry about trying to make friends, they'll come in time!


Keeo your head in the books and make the most of it. Realize this is an important step in your life that will send you in great directions in life.


Study hard, recive better grades in order to get more grant money. Start looking now for scholarships and internships. Work a job and save money up for stuff you need ect.


One of the most important things I have gained through my experience at Lindsey Wilson are the wonderful friends I have made. I have made friends I know I will have forever! I have also learned a lot about myself and who I want to be, like the fact that my human services and counseling career is exactly what I want to do with my life!


What I have gotten out of my college experience is just be yourself and study. You will make friends naturally and by meeting people in your classes. Why not start or join a study group? You are the only one who will decide how to get what you want out of school and out of life. Yes there is more to college than just studying but if you want more you will have to get out and look for it. Get more involved and speak up more. Be more sociable if you are looking to make friends. And for me, true friends are hard to come by. You will meet alot of people before you meet one genuine one. I really cant tell you what is missing from your life, I guess only you would know. It has been valuable because I have been encouraged to take risks, explore classes and interests, and to truly be open to new opportunities! A friend once told me, make the most of what takes place at college in side and outside the classroom and learn from life its self not just what you are taught. This what I base my life on!


I would tell myself to work and study harder to make better grades so that i could have more opportunities to get accepted to more colleges. Also I would tell myself to ask for more when it was needed because I never liked asking for help to make myself get a better grade because now i ask for help in college and I'm making good grades. The last thing I would say is take advantage of all time you have to make the grades that you want, apply for as many scholarships as you can, and take your work more seriously.


First and far most good grades all year through. The grades are what you need to succeed. Staying focused on my books all year long not only when sports are going on. Education education education is what are generation needs to focus on . Applying myself for the tests and exams.


Visit! Visit every school you are considering. Visit once with parents and once on an overnight visit by yourself. You get a true sense of how things will be when you are there without your parents. Also, don't be afraid to ask questions, like if the school has your major or how the dorms are. But most of all, focus your nervous energy into excitement. College is a big transition, but it can also be a fun one.


If I had the chance to go back in time when I was a high school senior I would give myself some much needed advice on what to expect from college life. Being as I tend to worry a lot, I would emphasize the importance on time management and organization skills. If I had known these useful tips before entering college I would have had a less stressful first semester of college. Also, I would have warned myself that studying is key in surviving college classes. College classes are sometimes unpredictable and tend to throw anything at you at the blink of an eye. Studying and being prepared for class is one of the most essential tips for any college student. Last of all I would tell myself to have fun and live life to its fullest with absolutely no regrets. Not only is that a characteristic we should all possess in being happy but with everything we may encounter in life.


Give it your all. Enjoy the time you have at this point in life, but dont take it lightly. Give your best effort in every class, every day. Never be satisfied with the status quo; continue to reach for higher goals to secure greater accomplishments in the future. Dont look towards the weekend or the next break, but looks towards the next day and make sure you use it well. Numbers and letters on a progress report are meaningless unless you have developed both in intellect and personality. Most of all, never let anyone or anything come between you and happiness.


To students I would say to not stress about the decision. It will fall into place as long as you keep looking and feeling out what is right for you. And to make the most of the college experience, GET INVOLVED. Whether it is sports, clubs, intramurals, just do it! It is a great way to meet people and gives you something to work for on campus.


Just go out and meet people and get involved, or you will miss out on so much that is the college experiance. Parents, you have to trust your kids, at some point they will have to leave, and letting college to be that time is a good thing, it lets them gorw and discover who they really are.


Finding the right college can be very hard. Trust me. I had three colleges in mind, but it was very hard to choose. For me, what got me into Lindsey Wilson College was a baseball scholarship. Everyone is different, so my advice would be to follow your heart. Only you (as a student) can choose what is right for you.


Find a college where you feel the most at home, then right off the bat find a good group a friends. Sourrounding your self with the right people will do wonders for your college experience. Look at the degrees offered and go for something that you feel youwill enjoy, not just a money making job.
