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


Mikayla, College is not a joke. Don't think for one second that everything will be okay. Keep your options open and don't forget to fill out lots and lots of scholarships. I cannot stress this enough. Money for college is going to cause you a lot more grief and hassle than you need right now at this stage in your life. Plan ahead, don't procrastinate. Above all, remember your future is a lot more important than what's on T.V. or the football game next Friday. I know you're stressed about grades and work but just do the best you can, don't give up. Keep college on your mind all day, every day. That's the most important thing in your life that you should be focused on right now. But don't stress too much, if you work hard and get to were I am today, well, you could do a lot worse than this. But you also could do better, so eyes on the prize and stay focused! You turn out to be a pretty cool person, so don't worry.


Getting my bachelor's degree has allowed me to see that there are many things I could do with it. I could either pursue a graduate degree in Psychology, or pursing my Registered Nursing degree and do a bridge program to obtain a Master's Degree as a Nurse Practitioner.


If i could go back in time and speak with myself as a high school senior i would tell myself to study harder and to pay more attention to my school work and to go straight to college after high school, and to let nothing stop you.


i would have finishied high school instaed of getting my GEd. then i would have gone to nursing school right away instead of waiting until i was 30 years old.


The advice I would give myself in regards to college life and making the transition is that life is full of changes. When you are given the opportunity to make a transition welcome the challenge because this is the first step to your adult life and the things you wish to obtain in the near future. College at first may be overwhelming, but do not let that discourage you. The courses you choose to take look at them as the building blocks of your career, this is what will lead you to the next phase of your adult life. I would say all hard work pays off in thee end.


Ah, self. Wouldn't you like to know where you are going to end up? Tough cookies cutie! Getting there is most of the fun! Start hoarding pencils with hefty erasers, don't ever let your BAC get above 0.08, and leave enough room in your brain for organic chemistry. Life is a roller coaster and college is the incline! Once you click yourself up that hill, (and it's HARD, no one ever tells you how hard it is, but you can do it!) it's all downhill from there! So SUCK it up. PAY your bills. For the love of all things holy keep a respectable credit score, and you will be just fine. There is all the time in the world to play once you've learned everything you need to know to make yourself self-sufficent. Hold your head up and take it one elemental group at a time! Also- the answer to that nasty question on your intro to chem exam is B, but you pass anyway, so don't stress it. GOOD LUCK!


If i could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior I would not give any different advice to myself. The reason for this is because i've always been on top of my school work and grades. I had a 4.0 my senior year, and graduated with a 3.7 for the 4 years i attended. The transition was not very hard for me because i was in advanced classes as a senior, so everything i am learning here i was already taught in high school. I am enrolled in a criminal justice program where i will recieve my bachelors. I currently have a 4.0 and have been atteneding for over a half a year. If i could go back to give advice to most seniors i would say to take things more serious because nothing is as important as your education. Without education you are not as likely to succeed in the world then somebody with further education. It is a proven fact that people who have a bachelors degree make 2 million dollars more in their lifetime then somebody with just high school education. Jacob E. Marquardt


If your Counselor at school doesn't help you, go out and find the resources yourself. Do the leg work. But also, make sure that the Counselor at your school is doing their job. Too many don't help, that is their job to bring you resources. Do your research on costs, campus life, volunteerism-does the school of your choice encourage it. Programs for tutoring as well. Explore all options and ASK QUESTIONS.....


Go to college as soon as you graduate because whatever you dont use you will lose. Go back while everything is still fresh.
