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


If I could go back in time to my senior year of high school. there would only be one thing that I would talk to myself about. That one thing would be resilancy. I would reassure myself that no matter how difficult my life got in the next few years, I would still persevere with flying colors. I would only need the resilant nature that I have been blessed with to take life in great stride and to learn from every mistake or mishap.


If I could go back in time and talk with myself as a highschool senior, there are several pieces of advice I would give myself. First of all I would tell myself to be a bit more assertive and straightforward with my roommates. If something bothers me then I should be direct and tell them the moment it happens rather than keeping it to myself. Secondly, I would tell myself to get some assignments and research done early if I have a lot of free time so that the end of semester crunch is not as intense. I would also advice myself to spend more time with other students and to have more fun. Last of all, I would tell myself not to worry too much and that college is not as scary or intimidating as it seems.


I would tell myself to spend more time at school getting to know my faculty and staff. I would tell myself to participate more in school based events and allow myself to grow with experiencing as much as possible. To take the time to consider the right career and set that goal. Staying focus is one of the most important decisions that can be made to save money, hardship, and time.
