Pierpont Community and Technical College Top Questions

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


My college experience has been eye-opening. I've learned a lot about myself and what I need to work on to get somewhere in life. In high school, my study habits were terrible and it was reflected when I started college. I've taken many classes to challenge myself and because of the smaller class sizes I feel more comfortable when asking questions. I learned what I like and don't like about scheduling classes, overloading your schedule, working a full-time job and being a full-time student. I know what to expect in my Sophomore year of college due to the administration staff and advisors. Overall, my college experience has given me wings to fly into something new.


The advice that I would give myself as a high school senior would be to not slack. It is so hard to not slack because of all of the stress that you are under but if you can get through it you will be better off. The reason I say this is because if you slack you are less likely to get scholorships and such to go to school, you miss many oppurtunities that you could have had otherwise, and you end up working harder on down the road and possibly long than you would have if you would have tired harder. Always try to do your best and never settle for less. You cannot get anywhere by sleeping all day. Make sure that you make your friends wisely and they will always be there for you.
