Before I came to Rogue Community College I wish I knew more about scholarships because now im having a hard time trying to figure out how to pay for my education. It is getting harder and harder not to give up. Also having to work ward and moving foward to complete my dreams while studying without having to deal with stress about money. Also all the different carrers and prices I could choose from, because money wise I will have to choose a different career to go into,until I can afford becoming a dental hygiene.


Do homework in the tutoring center. Spend at least two hours doing homework and studying for each hour you are in class. Do your homework assignments as they are assigned. Do not be afraid to ask for help. If you do not understand something, keep asking questions until you do!


I wish I would have known how big of a workload I can take on while still being successful. I wish I would have known the required commitment level. No one is there to check up on you in college to make sure you're doing satisfactorily. You have to be 100{4a082faed443b016e84c6ea63012b481c58f64867aa2dc62fff66e22ad7dff6c} engaged and committed to investing your time and energy in your college career. Talk to instructors and advisors, go to the tutoring center, get access to student resources, seek personal and academic counseling when needed, and take advantage of student benefits that you are paying for.


Basic stuff like how to log in and stuff like that, but it wasn't to bad just took sometime to figure it out.


I first attended college over 30 years ago and the one thing I wish I had known then which I know now is how important it is to stick with it! I had to work full time as well and it became very difficult so I gave up school. I didn't realize how beneficial it would be to have a degree going forward, particularly from a financial perspective. The types of employment with better pay and benefits really makes a difference in obtaining all other goals in life.


I wish I would have been able to evaluate my professors before I took their classes. It was hard to find out about a teacher and how they taught which made it hard for me to be able to choose a professor that best matched me.


I wish I had known, and am glad I discovered early that figuring out what degree your going for is a huge benefit. As most community colleges many classes are only offered once a year. Fortunately, they are usually at the same time year after year so I was able to figure out my whole 3 years using the old scheduling books. That is how I got to take everything I wanted.


I wish that I would have gone sooner and found more funding to pay for everyday things like housing and utilities. I should have looked sooner than what I have been.
