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


I wish I had known that there was only one church. Although, it is a Catholic school I hoped that other religions would have been represented.


Before I came to this school, I wish I had known how demanding the schoolwork would be. During my first semsester of freshman year, I struggled just a little bit because I had not expected to have such a large workload. The work I had done in high school seemed easy compared to my college work. However, I have now adjusted to the workload and have a better idea of what to expect in each new semester.


I wish I had known how to manage my time wisely. If you are able to manage your time well, then you can get a lot done and still have plenty of time left over for fun.


That living on campus would be so fun, so I might have prepared myself to be more determined to stay focused. Mostly everything else was what was expected, and in that way, was good.
