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

I would say to make sure you study a lot on your classes and to have a study group. If you are too shy to be around people you can use flash cards or study with a brother/sister. Never give up on what you want to succeed in and always strive for the better to improve yourself that you can do it even though it may take step by step. College does go by so fast because of the schedule and just how much you've grown after high school and feeling more like an adult and more responsibilities. Get involved in school activities or take a class that will most interest you to keep you motivated on the career you would like to see yourself in two years or so after college. Meet new people everyday and learn different people from other cities or country's. Its nice to get to know the school and students at school to feel good about going to school to accomplish something. College is the fun part in life because its always good to have that education n achieve for the better.

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

You know Matt, in college, the teachers are not going to be reminding you when homework is due. You need to be disciplined and stay on track. Don't let time get away from you. Just because your term paper isn't due for another two weeks, don't assume you have a lot of time. Between work, friends and life, time will get away from you. We're going to be in an adult world now. So dude, let's not mess it up. Set up a plan and stick to it.

What's unique about your campus?

I chose MJC because it is close to where I live and allows me the opportunity to live at home while working full-time and furthering my education. I enjoy the small campus atmosphere, making it easier to meet fellow students and staff. My goal is to attend MJC for approximately two years and then transfer to a four year college.

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

Dear Younger Me, Life does not get easier from this point, nor does it necessarily get harder. There will be more choices. There will be more regrets, more responsiblity. There will be more rewards. To be successful: read what you are supposed to read. Don't assume anything won't be on the test. Do what you know needs to be done NOW because leaving it for later turns into the lame excuse "I didn't have time." Study for tests, but don't do it at 2:00am the morning of, and be sure to ask for help when you need it. You will learn that few mistakes are completely irreversable, and that it is worth the effort to correct them, this applies to life as well as school. You will learn success is more than a number in a back account, and beauty is less about how a person looks and more about how they feel. You will learn that a good attitude can change an irritating situation to an irrelevent one. You will learn dreams are worth following, and if you follow them long enough, you will find them.

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

I wish I more about the resources and people available and how helpful they were. For example the librians and the writing resource.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone willing to put the time and effort in. I've found my teachers to be much more accessable than I anticipated but you have to take the steps to reach out and communicate with them.
