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

If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior, I would say to not worry about my future. I would say to not worry about not knowing the field of study to go into or what to be "when you grow up". People are out there to help you make transitions and help you choose what to study. The college life is fun and nothing to be worried about!

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

I don't have anything bad to say about Rio Salado College.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

This is a great school with a lot of opportunity for growth and advancement. I have always enjoyed going to this school because it gives me the freedom to be able to choose my education whether online or at the campus

With this school you can go online or to the campus. It is very diverse which makes it a great school to go to. The professors are very knowledgable and very helpful.

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

It is very important to go to all your classes and study hard. Good grades are what matter not impressing your friends. Take time to study but also take time for yourself. Remember what's important in your life, family. Friends may come and go but family will be there forever. School is very important. Get as much education as you can. Always be learning in all you do. And always remember, nothing lasts forever. It will get better. Keep your chin up and keep a smile on your face.

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

If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior knowing what I know now about college life and making the transition... I would only have to tell myself on thing: "Don't waste most of your life by waiting 20 years to attend college."

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I take classes online and never have to even have to get out of bed if I don't want to!

Describe the students at your school.

I don't know anything about my classmates because I am doing Rio Salado College online and there have been no discussions yet amongst the classmates to respond to.

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

If I could give myself some advice on the transition from high school to college, I would coach myself in this way to further my education. Strategically, it would be best to go straight into college right from high school when your responsiveness to learning and idealisms have better opportunity. This would have aligned me in the job market at an earlier age. With the loss of time and without a college education you lessen your options of success in attaining your goals. Second, it?s important to apply to college to put your educational plan in motion. Without a plan you have nothing to achieve. While in that process, you?ll want to apply for scholarships, grants and student loans. Afterall, you will definitely need a way to pay for your education. In doing so, you also alleviate the worry of how to pay for college thus allowing you to focus on your studies and career path. We all know that it only gets more and more difficult as you get older to go back to school. Challenging situations that occur in life, having a family, working full time, and bills all build upon the stress in your life.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

I think that anybody can attend this school. There are so many subjects in this school that you can attend and if you don't like them you can drop it and take other classes that will best fit your needs. That is the best thing when you are in college is having that freedom to take whatever classes you want besides of course the classes that are required like math, english and reading. Maybe the only people that shouldn't attend are the people that choose not to go to school.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

I think that the school or at least my classes are all online which allows me to do work from my high school while receiving both high school and college credit.

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

If I could go back and talk to myself as a high school senior I would tell myself to enjoy and appreciate the free time I have, and to cherish the moments I have with myself, friends, and family because once you start college you don't have a lot of time to yourself or to be around the ones you care about because you are consumed in studying and other responsibilities that come with growing up. I would also tell myself that once I get into college I need to be more aware of dates and when things are due because you don't have the luxury of you teacher being on your case about that assignment that's due next Monday, if you figure your assignments you don't have the luxury to turn it in at a later date because a lot of professors won't accept them. That's what I would go back and tell my self as a high school senior.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

What I consider to be the worst thing about my school is that it is all online. I consider this to be the worst thing because there is no in person interaction with the instructors which is especially hard when I attend a high school that is allowing me to take the college courses for high school and college credit, and I am not able to receive any help outside of the books that I am given because my high school teachers can't help me.
