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


There are a few things I would tell myself. First, I would tell myself what college to attend, and what major to have. Second, I would tell myself that even though there are pretty women, and many parties to attend, I should attend those in moderation and concentrate on my school work. There is no greater shame than to go to a party, not study for an important exam, and get that failing exam grade back, knowing you could have done so much better. Third, I would tell myself that studying, and staying on top of my school work were the most important things in college. Always be ahead of the game. I would tell myself not to worry about making friends and being cool. Those will come with time. I would also tell myself that developing study groups with classmates is the best way to meet people and to get good grades on tests and exams. The last thing I would tell myself would be to buy a good laptop computer with a printer, instead of using the computer labs all the time.


I would tell myself to go to college now, because it will be alot easier than when you are older because you are still used to school and how things are taught, but if you do not, do not ever quit learning.


undertand that your school does not have a dorm. you will have to find an apartment and a way to pay for that apartment. mom and dad doesnt have a lot of money and you are on your own for the first time. you should stay away from parties because it will only slow you down. remember that you are competing with your classmate in the job market when you graduate and you do not want to be just a mediocre because that means you are just an average person, exceptional people are the ones who get the good jobs. always remind your roomates when the bills are due because for many people it is not their biggist prority and nobody likes a naggy roomate who always cries about the bill either so i reccomend putting a whiteboard with the bills on the apartment EXIT door. you put it there because everyone can not say they did not see it. to sum up all these words, just be responsible. i always go by this motto. "work hard, play hard", but stay out of trouble!


I would tell myself to make better decisions about where i went to school. I would tell myself to do what your heart tells you to do and do it for yourself and nobody else. Don't waste your time going to school for something that you don't want to be, choose the school that you know will make you happy and pursue it. Stand up for what you believe in and be proud of the things that you have accomplished. Do more to help yourself and others. Work hard for the things you want because in due time you will have them. Don't let discouragement ruin your day, if you get knocked down, get back up and keep trying.
