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


School is expensive, whether you do have a scholarship or not, it is important to take it seriously because of this matter. Proritize your education before anything else, make sure to make smart money choices (buying used books online), and definetly do not get too invloved into the party scene. Make beneficial relationships with people who value you, themselves, and others! Network and get invloved with student organizations, teacher assistantships, and the community projects. Stay focused, positive, productive, and treat this phase of your life as as a preperation for real life. Go to class, study always, and work hard!

If I did, I would have signed up for the ROTC program or National Guard to pay for my schooling. "Sometimes you have to do things that you don't want to do, to get to where you need to be."


I wish I had researched the school more. I honestly didn't know too much about it. I didn't know it was an HBCU which I'm okay with but I was hoping to get a more diverse experience. Most of all I wish I had prepared myself better than I had at the time.
