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

Before coming to Oakwood University, I wish I would have been better informed about scholarship opportunities. As a transfer student, I did not feel as though I was offered the same quality of scholarships as maybe those who came straight out of high school. My scholarship search could have been a lot easier if someone assisted me. This is not completely Oakwood University's fault because I also have the responsibility of being independent-- I just wish I would have received more information prior to attending.

I wish i would have known that if your GPA happens to fall below a 2.0 then the student will become on academic probation where he/she has to be in the dorm by 11:30pm no later each day. The student will not be allowed to spend the night anywhere except the dorm. I also wish i would have known that the work out room is so small and the availability and hours of the cafe and library does not fit everybody's schedule.

I wish that I had known to fill out more scholarships before I came to school. I would have made a part time job out of submitting scholarships. School is very expensive and that is the one thing that I regret not doing. I also wish that I developed better study habits in highschool so that I could develop them better in college.

I wish I would have known how on fire the spiritual life is around here because coming from a more conservative church I never really experienced this kind of worship. At this school, the go all out when it comes to praising the Lord. Regular worships sometimes turn into fully active concerts; it is utterly amazing!

I wish I had known about the curfew when applying to school. I also wish I had known about how it is impossible to get food after 10 pm. Another thing I wish I had known about was the fines I can recieve. For example being fined for being late to curfew. I wish I was aware of these things before I came here.

I want to start a new life on my own in order to understand what it's like to become a responsible for all the things that I would love to do in the future. Begin on the journey to a new mission that I need to do during school and the future.
