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


Get a planner. Organize your life, including due dates for papers, tests, projects, on campus activities, etc. Your planner will be your lifeline; it will keep you on task. Also, find a way to relax. Do not get over-stressed about school work. Make sure you take breaks, like listening to music, watching a short tv show, taking a walk, etc. Getting too freaked out about something will make you do worse in school.


I wish I had known better than to take things too seriously. Students tend to sacrifice too much of their precious time to worrying about things beyond their control. Relax and make time to unwind because, even though you want to do your best, it's more important to not drive yourself insane with trying to figure out life all at once.
