Salt Lake Community College Top Questions

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


If i could change anything was take more credits that would help towards my college credits especially since it would have made my schooling much cheaper then it will be now. I shoud have started thinking of my future sooner and not just the present.


A Letter to Me If I could write a letter to me, what would it say? I would tell myself to relax, to spend a little less time worrying about what will happen the next day. I would tell myself to enjoy life; that we won’t get those moments back. I would tell myself to just focus on what we are learning in school and the grades will follow; SMACK! After getting our attention, I would tell myself to listen to mom about those scholarships-working and going to school is not fun, and they’ll help us avoid student-loan partnerships. I would tell myself to enjoy school, that it is much more than academic. Get to know those around you, for kindness and love is the greatest epidemic.


If I went back in time and talked to myself as a high school senior I would say, apply for scholarships early. It's more likely for you to get them right out of high school rather than waiting like I did.


I would tell myself how much of a future I will have if I read more. The greatest regret that I have in my current life is my lack of exposure to literature -both scientific and artistic. Now that I am in school, reading books that are not required has improved both my written communication, as well as my knowledge of things previously unknown to me. Additionally, it has made my contribution to in class discussion significantly better. I wish I could tell myself to do better in school in general, but I know I wouldn't listen. Instead, if I could inspire my younger self to read books as much as I watched documentaries, then I would be an even better student now than I am (3.5 GPA, honors role). I have had to work very hard to catch up to what I felt would be necessary for college, but maybe that hard work is why I am so much better now. Ultimately, the future is what I can change, and the past is the lesson I learned that from.


I would say learning to schedule time would be the most beneficial advice. Allot time for homework/studying. Do it everyday and create routines to make sure things get done. College isn't too difficult, but it is easy to misplace and forget things. It also allows you to have a social life along with academic success if you're really trying to focus on getting good grades. Not too mention that studying too long at one time can become counter-productive.


Good Luck. Because you will soon find out that things didn't go as planned. We didn't receive financial aid but that won't stop us because no matter how tired we get from work we will keep moving forward and meet some amazing people along the way. Get organized with balancing school, work, and free time, because it will make such a big difference. Don't be afraid of socialzing with people, college is about having fun and meeting new people so go out and make new friends. Time to get serious, there will be days when we will want to sit down and give up, cry our eyes out until there is nothing left but trust me when i say in the end it will be all worth it. I'm proud of you for making it this far and good luck this Semester.


If I could go back in time to my senior year and talk to myself about college life , i would have first told myself the positives about school that it is not as terrifying as people make it seem and it is nice to be able to make your own schedual and pick your own classes that you are intrested in. I would then tell myself to prepare for college now by working so i would have more money saved up for school. I would also encourage myself to take all of the AP tests for my classes, as well as applying for more scholarships. I would also explain that it is important to decide your major before school so you can pick General Education classes that will my career.


You need to make sure you apply for every scholarship you can. Your life isnt going to go according to you want, so be prepared for the unexpected.


When I was a high school senior I didn't like people telling me what to do. So this would be kind of hard, but I would tell myself to shut up and listen. I would tell myself that high school isn't the "be all and end all" of my life. I would tell myself to try to get college credit now so I won't have to spend so much money in the future. I would proceed to tell myself to maintain a high GPA because it will look good on college applications. I would also tell myself to find out what I wanted to do earlier so I wouldn't have such a difficult time figuring it out now. That is what I would have told my high school senior self. Thank you.


To: YOU (high school student) Listen, LISTEN, ACT, DO, and participate at being your absolute best in all academic achievements. Your future, your children's future will need NOT suffer in fincances, time, and stress if you will only succeed at doing your absolute best. Attend college, get your degree, work hard, so that you CAN and will have more time with your beautiful boys. The time is NOW! Don't fear education. Don't fear success. You will not quit and you will conquer.


The absolute best advice I would give myself is to just be myself and to work as hard as possible to reach my goals. It's cliche but it is so true. Personally I spent so much time in high school trying to be someone or something I wasn't. I wanted to be popular and fit in, that was my focus during school and it made me completely miserable. I wish I would've just been myself and worked harder to reach my goals to study abroad, volunteer more, be a better person and get a better job. If I had done those things, I may not be in this position, doing everything possible to pay for school. I would tell myself that popularity doesn't matter and that working hard is really what is important.


If I could talk to myself as a high school senior I would tell me not to worry so much about the future. I would tell myself to apply for as many scholarships as possible, and to save up money for college. I would also tell myself that life is not going to go how I planned it. The changes that happen in your college life can help you learn. I would tell myself to take college classes during high school so I could get my degree faster. I would tell myself that college is not as scary as I think it is going to be. Going away to school is not such a bad thing. It can be a litte rough money wise but you learn a lot about yourself, stengths and weaknesses. I would say to have fun and enjoy life during your college years! Date, travel, try new things! The most important thing I would tell myself would be, not to be scared to live and go out on my own, and have adventure!


I would tell my self as i was going into my junior year that I need to sign up for the MACT program of my choice so that I would have a decent job while going to college full time. I would also tell my self to figure out what study habit works best for me so I did not have to figure it out during my college classes. I'd tell my self that I need take as many AP class as I could and pass them all so I would be ahead in college and not have to waste my first couple years doing all prerequs for my general education and being able to start my program course earlier.


Dear Anthony from the past, Although you did well in high school, college is a whole different ball park. In high school you where able to get by with high scores on your assignments and mediocre scores on tests. Well unfortunately, in college, there is not that many assignments. There's lots of tests though. Those tests make up more than half of your grade in every class. So although doing your assignments is great, it is twice as essential to get good scores on your tests. You need to develop better study habits. I suggest spending an hour a day in a very quit enviroment reviewing all the things that you went over in your classes that day. Also, making flash cards will be very useful. It's going to be a lot of work but it's worth it and it makes a big difference. Trust me, with these tools, you'll have no problem passing every test. Good luck!


If I could go back in time, I would tell myself not to be afraid to try new experiences. I left for college right after high school, but I was homesick and came home. After a twenty-year gap in my education, I am returned to school a few years ago. I wish that I hadn't let my homesickness stop me from continuing my education so many years ago. I would encourage myself to stick it out and stay at school.


If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior, this is the advice I would give myself: "Miranda, I know you feel like high school is all about friends, socializing, and distractions that seem SO important at this time. However, after graduation, none of this will matter like it does right now. College is full of new experiences, and you should really take some time to prepare. Working and going to school full-time will not be as easy as you think. Therefore, you should begin saving most of your money for college rather than spending it on new clothes every weekend. Take more time to study. Figure out what you want to do in life, and make a clear set of goals. Rather than sitting in class just because you have to, create a sincere interest in every subject by relating them to these goals. Do your best to maintain a high GPA, and take as many college classes as possible while still in high school. This, along with knowing where you wish to go, will save you a generous amount of needed time and money in your future."


When i was twenty years old i volunteered to be a missionary for my church. I commited myself for two years and was stationed in Brazil. While i was there i saw the effects that a poor education system has on a society. I made a goal that when i returned to the US i would get a college degree. Since that time my knowledge of the physical and social world around me has been enlightened. I have begun to scratch the surface in areas of science and philosophy. The deeper i go, the better understanding i have of the world and other people. I have not only learned about the world and how it works, but have learned my own limits and have strengthened my talents as well as learned new ones. I have grown to understand the importance of citizenship. Thisnew understading i have has led me to become a weekly volunteer at a local hospital, and has motivated me to vote during every election. I have come to understand my role in this world.


A letter to my 18 year old self: Dear Summer, Graduating from high school was the first step in a lifetime of learning. I know the last thing you want to think about after finally getting out of institutionalized schooling is more shooling. Well, too bad. The worst possible thing for you to do is expect someone else to do it for you. Do not, under any circomstances, be so naieve as to expect a man to provide for you. You are your own person. You are smart enough and strong enough to do it yourself. Be brave enough to leave home. Go to school outside of your comfort zone. I know money is nice to have, but trust me, starting college at the age of 28 is a lot harder than just doing it now. Plus, if you go now, you will be done by the time you are 24 insead of 34! You can do it. Don't be afraid of your potential and your success. You are brighter than everyone gave you credit for and you can do anything you put your mind to. For Gods sake, JUST DO IT! Love, Summer


If I could go back in time I would say to myself. Take english seriously, it can only help. I would tell myself to go to school for what I love to do right from the begining, instead of going for the money. I would tell myself to take my studies seriously, but to not forget my family. The number one thing that I would remind myself of is my love for learning and to make sure that I am doing something I love. That school does you no good if your do not have an open heart, an open mind, and a willingness to let things go and just learn.


If i were to talk to myself while i was back in high school, i would totally tell myself NOT to graduate early. I graduate a semester early and i regret it. I did recieve money by doing it, but having stayed there would have been for beneficial. I would tell myself to stay in school and take more concurrent enrollment classes! Those are the most important classes to me. If i could go back, i would totally try to get my Associates degree by taking as many of those classes as possible. Best advice for my past high school self would be to take a lot of college credit classes.


I would give myself the advice to take as many college classes in high school that I could. This saves money for tuition and allows students to be exposed to a college environment. These classes will help one prepare for college and give one an idea of what to expect in college. Its also a good idea to work while in high school because the more money one can save, the better.


Dear Mallory- If there is any advice I could give you it would be to stay optimistic, be flexible to change and new ideas, and realize that in the future, things will come up. Sometimes we find ourselves in situations that are out of our control, either personally or financially, where pursuing further education may have to come second to your life. Most of your peers will be either graduating with their degrees or applying to graduate school. What is important to remember is to never lose sight of your goals. Good things take time; school takes time. Never feel that you are in competition with anyone or feel the need to rush your education. Right now you're thinking you go to college, graduate and land your dream job, but in the future economic climate we live in, that?s not the case. While your friends may have earned their degrees in four years, they are struggling to enter the job market with unemployment around 9-10% nationwide. Try to stay motivated and find a path that suits your own lifestyle; you can?t always plan out your life but always continue to pursue your goals. Sincerely, Mallory Black


I think during a point of everyones life we all have the "If I could do it all over again" moment but in this instance as a senior if I could talk to my self again I would say stick with it, staying in college is the best option. If you delay or stop it is so hard to go back. Now I find myself as a 33 year old mom thinking if I had stuck with it how different life would be, how different my career choices would be and the options I can give my kids.


There are essential things that high school seniors need to know for the transition from High school to college. Most of the things I know now; are the ones that I have learned by getting involved as a student ambassador. The advice that I would give to I if I were a High school senior again is: ?Don?t be afraid of asking for help, if you ask for help does not mean that you will not be ?cool? anymore. ?Do not let your shyness stop you from succeeding. ?Apply for scholarships and grants; this will help you pay for school tuition, fees, books, and other school related expenses. ?Turn in applications ON TIME! ?See an Academic Adviser as soon as possible, they will let you know what courses you need to take ?It is okay to be undecided on what your major is going to be ?Be prepared for all your classes, and attend to all the sessions. ?College is not like High school. ?Learn to manage your time between school, homework, job, and other extracurricular activities. ?Do what you want to do, not what others tell you to do.


Knowing what I now know about college life and having the ability to travel back in time to when I was in highschool. I would advise myself to work a lot harder in class. Instead of procrastinating the entire time and eeking out average grades. I would have made a conscious effort to pay close attention and actually focus on learning. I would have completed my assignments and turned them in on-time. I would have tried harder and not let my desire to have fun, out-weigh my responsibilities as a student. I would have paid more attention in class, instead of letting my mind wander to the point of putting all my focus on meaningless childish things.


Looking back on my high school experience, I realize that I thought it was the most important thing in the world and still didn't always take it seriously. I also realize that my high school years were the one major opportunity I had with virtually unlimited amounts of time and more disposable income. If I could go back and talk to myself before I graduated, I would tell myself to take as many Concurrent Enrollment/AP classes as I could because it is a great way to take college courses without the added expense. I would also tell myself to make sure I took my grades and extra-curricular activities seriously because so much of your college experience depends on what you did as a high school student. I would also remind myself, for good measure, to make sure I had the best time I could because while life does get better, high school offered me some pretty great days.


Going back to talk to myself as a high school senior would be a bittersweet chance for me. There's no guarantee that I would even listen to myself. How hard headed I must have been to know I wouldn't even listen to myself. I imagine the high school me would be laying on the bed, ear phones in my ears, volume turned up to the max, homework sitting by my side untouched, and my phone right in my hand texting away. I would walk in and tell my highschool self to go to school! I would ask myself the question that I ask myself this very day, Why don't you go to class? What's wrong with your classes? Senior year is the most important year in high school and I know you don't want to go believe me I can feel how you feel. Just go, it saves us so much trouble at the end of year. And maybe you will actually be able to enjoy your summer instead of doing make up packets. College is so much better than high school, trust me, we LOVE it. So please just try, for us.


If I could go back to high school and tell my stubborn, teenage self one thing I have learned from being in college, it would be to start studying! In high school I avoided studying like it was the black plague. And although I still received good grades in high school it would have been beneficial to have study habits figured out BEFORE i needed to put them to use. In high school I was always at a friends or on a date and even when I was home I was playing games with my family. Studying was a thought that didn't cross my mind until the day of a big test. But after being in college, I have realized I cant just listen to a lecture and hope my brain absorbs and retains the content. Learning college level material requires college level effort. And while friends, dating and family are all very important, an education is important too (especially when you are paying for it). So I would tell myself have fun while you are in high school but also work in time to study, and find a method that works for you.


High school is a once in a lifetime opportunity that I think most people take for granted including myself. If I could go back in time to when I was a senior in high school the advice that I would give myself would be to take advantage of all Advanced Placement and college credit classes because it will save so much time. Rather than having to complete a lot of general education classes you can take more classes specific to your major. It would be a good idea to have a job while in high school to help save as much money as you can to pay for future schooling, but most importantly participate in as many school activities and clubs as possible. You will never regret taking advantage of opportunities given. These will help you to grow and to discover who you are. Also, so many more doors will be opened in your future because of all the experiences you will have from taking part in school activities. You're only in high school once so don't let it pass by without enjoying the ride.


Dear Me, Here's some college advice from the future. Cool, I know. Ok, first, save your money! College is a lot more expensive than you think. Second, your high school counlelor doesn't know everything. You have to find information about colleges and scholarships youreslf. They are a good place to start but the rest is up to you. Third, don't do what everyone else is doing. Take classes you want and join the clubs that you want. After high school, everyone will go their own way. Make sure you know what way you are going to go. Fourth, spend time getting to know your teachers. They may seem crazy now, but you will look back and realize you could have learned a lot from their life experiences. Plus, when it comes time for them to write a letter of recommendation, they will know more about you so they can write a better letter. Last but not least, don't procrastinate those due dates! Just do it! If you don't have time to fill out an application right now, schedule a time to do it so you don't forget. Good Luck! Love, Me.


I would give myself two words of advice before I started my post high school education. The first one being the importance of creating good study habbits. This is important because 95 % of the learning I have done has come from doing work at home or studying on my own outside the classroom. Being a student that seldom did homework in high school this was an exceptionally hard thing for me to learn. The second is to not be afraid to try new things. When I first graduated, I was in a routine where I would go to school, where I would attend the same type of classes I had done all through high school, go to the same job that I had since the summer before my senior year, after which I would go home where I would eat watch some television then go to sleep. I would repeat this routine everyday. This kept things very much like high school for me and I did not enjoy it. A friend suggested I become part of Studend Life and Leadership and everything we did outside of my routine changed my life and made my school experience much more enjoyable.


I would tell myself to study daily! Take the time to make good study habits and get homework done. I would also tell myself to take as many concurrent enrollment and AP classes as you can so you've got a jump start in your college career. Another thing I would say is to apply for any and all scholarships available. They can pay for anything school realated whether it be books, a laptop, tuition, once the money is you're you can spend it basically how you like; and college can be expensive. Don't think that because you've got it made with tution, etc. that you won't have to sacrifce more of your time and money than anticpated. Be prepared for whatever lies ahead. Keep your options open and take classes in several areas to found out your own personal niche. And once you find your niche, stick with it and don't waste your time and money on classes that won't help you get a degree. Also, try to get good scores on your ACT, SAT, and other placement tests and get your name to as many colleges and universities you're intersted in.


Dear Senior Carly, You're about to graduate how exciting! Please; however, be careful of getting what many call "senioritis". Symptoms include taking the easiest classes possible, laziness, lack of studying, and becoming apathetic about school in general. The cause is when seniors focus merely on the minimal requirements to graduate high school, rather than focusing on college. Don't fall into this trap! Taking this year seriously, you can put yourself ahead after graduation. One way to do this is take more college level classes. Passing these classes will save you a lot of time and money! They also teach you valueable study skills and they give you a taste of what college coursework is like, making you more prepared to be a successful student. Besides taking academics more seriously, I would also advice to get involved in more extracurricular activities. In college it becomes more difficult to balance school, work, having a family, and whatever else may come along. Take advantage of anything you can get involved in now! You can also learn valueable lessions from participating in extracurricular activities. such as balancing your responsibilities. Please take these words of advice, and good luck! Sincerely, future Carly


There would be a lot of advice that I would give myself. I work as an Outreach Specialist, so it is my job to help high school students make the transition to college. I would tell myself to take more concurrent classes in high school. I would tell myself to be even more involved in my community and to start earlier into the career that I am working on now. In high school I had some ideas of what I wanted to go to school for but I was still not sure. Now that I know what I want, I would tell myself to go for it sooner. I would tell myself to start at Salt Lake Community College to save money and get a better feel for college then go to the University. My experience at the University was still really good but would have been better if I had started here. I would have felt more comfortable with the whole process and would have a better chance to see all that a college offers. My parents never went to college to having to find out everything on my own was hard but possible.


Take time for yourself. Look at all of your options before you jump into a class. Just because it looks fun, it is not always your best option. You need to look at the long term goal. Everything takes time. You don't have to do everything at once. Even if you have to take one class at a time to get you closer to your goal, you are one step closer than if you didn't. You might as well take what you can handle, no matter how long it takes. You will always be moving forward, and you will eventally be that age that you forsee at the end; so, you might as well make it worth your while in each class you take. Take it in and enjoy.


How does the cliche go? Hindsight is 20/20. I have always been a subscriber to the school of thought that says that the most valuable knowledge we recieve is obtained through experience. If I could go back in time to the simple high school years I doubt I would have even listened to my present older, wiser, and better looking self (blessedly I no longer part my hair down the center). I've had to be honest with myself and push aside the career pipe dreams of my high school days and take a realistic inventory of my skills and interests: I write well. I like to cook. I've always been a connoisseur of great literature. If I could tell my hard-headed little high school self anything, it would be to not waste time with the unimportant. Video games got me nowhere in a hurry. Dilusions that I will write the great American novel and make hundreds of thousands overnight need to be put aside (not that I'll ever give up on that dream). Though I will write day. In short, I'd tell myself to prioritize and learn as much as possible.


I have asked myself many times what I would do differently if I knew then what I know now. I am a person that tries to predict how my future will be carried out. I have had many thoughts about school and my profession. If I could talk to myself as a high school senior I would give myself advice about online classes, choosing classes, and the importance of scholarships. First, I would tell myself the benefits and downfalls to online classes. I would make sure I knew that they can be very convenient and useful in saving money on gas. However, I would make sure I knew about the minimal interaction with other people and that it can become very depressing. Next, class choice is very important. Many professors are not qualified to teach their own class and examining this is important before choosing. Finally, I would make sure I attempted to get more scholarships. I was very lazy in high school and now I have to pay for all of my classes. Scholarships are very important. The three things that are to be considered when looking at college are online classes, class choice, and scholarships.


If I could go back in time, I would tell my younger self to not forget taking the time to live. College is certainly there for the education, and for making one a smarter person, but it's also there to give you life. Perspective, and opportunity, the things that create memories, and make one a better person. Instead of locking myself away in dorm rooms, waiting for life to find me, I would tell myself to go out there and embrace it. Experience things, talk to people, make new friends, but never expect the world to unfold for you, just because you want it. And I would tell myself to stick with passion. Getting marketable degrees that have career potential sounds like the right way to go about things, but if you're not in love with what you're learning, then no amount of job security can save you. Study something that you can't stop loving to learn about. Money will come in time, so long as you love what you do. I'd tell myself to believe strong, and cherish every single day I have.


I would tell myself to keep doing what I'm doing! Stay on track, continue being organized and ready for what ever life may had you! Keep your head up when finals come around, you cant stress about it, even after you turn them in. Stressing will not change the grade. Remember that school comes before the parties and fun. Don't flip out on people if they tell you that you need to relax, take the advice it might do you more good than harm. If you need help, ask!! There is no such thing as a dumb question. Once all your questions are answered you will understand what is asked of you and turn it in on time. Don't slack off, if you do you'll end up with grades you don't want or like so I'm telling you as your future self to get your head in the game and stop worrying about those around you. Last be yourself when all else fails, 'cause in the end you can only take your knowledge.


If I was able to go back into time and tell myself what I know now, I would probably say that going to class is extermely important. Everyone tells you this but it isnt until after you are gone and in college you realize that simple mistakes you have made during High School effect you in the long run. Yes hanging with your friends and socalizing is important but so is your education your friends can wait, Always put school first!


I would tell myself to give myself more credit and to try harder. In high school I was a Honor Society member, had high grades, and participated in many of the school events. When it came time to graduate I only applied to one school, knowing almost everyone is accepted. I didn't think I would be accepted anywhere else. I was scared of rejection so I did not try. I know now that I can succeed when given the chance. The most important advice I would give would be to believe in myself and not to fear rejection. Rejection is a part of life and we can learn from it. I would also tell myself if I am given an opportunity I need to grasp that opportunity and run as far as I possibly can with it. This year I will be graduating from a community college. I feel I have a second chance to apply what I have learned about making transitions. I am telling myself to take a chance, not to fear the potential risk of rejection, and to take hold of new opportunities. I don't want to regret making the same mistake .


If I could go back there are a few things that I would tell myself. First would be to take as many college classes my senior year as possible to make high school worth it. Second would be to volunteer in the community and to job shadow in a variety of occupations to help me better understand what I want to do as a carreer. Third would be to go to college and live away from home. As I have been away from home I have better learned to depend on myself and have learned that some things really are not that important. One of those things is sports. I would tell myself that playing highschool sports is not worth it and is quite frankly, a waste of time. I should focus on school, family, and serving others. The hardest transition from high school to college is not the work load, it is learning to depend on and trust oneself. I would tell myself to focus on living rather than just existing and going through the motions. Life is there to be enjoyed and by trusting oneself and helping others life can and will be enjoyed.


Hey Jos, Go through with your plans to attend Dixie State College. You will eventually end up moving back with mom and dad to save money for the Spring 2010 semester and because you are a little tired of the small town of St. George; but do not get down on yourself. While in St. George you meet one of your best friends, she is a very fun and outgoing girl that helps you to meet a lot of fun people. You also meet a very good guy right before you move back, so you MUST hold out until Spring 2010. I promise, he is a keeper. You also figure out where you stand religiously while living in St. George, this is very valuable. You decide to pursue a social work degree at Salt Lake Community College, so do not waste time on classes you do not need at Dixie. School is expensive! Apply for as many scholarships as possible, hundreds and hundreds of them. find them at school, online, and at local banks. You are such a beautiful person and I am so happy to see the girl that we have become.


If I could go back in time I would take advantage of more concurent enrollment oppurtunities offered at my school. This would have been a good way for me to complete even more college credits while still in high school thus propelling me even farther ahead of my peers. I think its important to obtain as much education as possible early in your life. I would also remind myself of the importance of good study skills. Having a good study method would have helped me retain much of the information that I leaned in high school, which I quickly disregarded. I did not quite understand the importance of hard work and how difficult it is to break the habits which I had relied on to get me by for so long. I would be sure to remind my old self that school isn't entirely about the social scene and trying to become someone that everyone wants me to be; rather its a time to find out who you are and what goals you would like to achieve in your life.


If I could go back as a High School Senior knowing what I know now, I would change a lot of things. I would have furthered my education sooner. I could have applied myself better to get in a good college right away. I would have already been able to start my career right off if my education came first then. It has taken me a long time to start my college education with a family to take care of. I know now that if I had started college right after high school, my career would have been long on its way. If I would have applied myself better throughout high school, I could have gotten into a good college then. I could have taken my SATs and other tests that would have helped me out now. I would have set goals for my future and taken things more seriously. I can do anything that I set my mind to. I would also not let what people say hold me back.


As a high school senior, I did not have any idea what I wanted to go to school for. I ended up waisting alot of time taking classes here and there, and most semesters not taking classes at all. Now that I have decided on something I am right on tack, but I could have been done so much sooner if I had gone to school full time earlier and decided on something sooner. It was easy to say to myself that I would "just work this semester" and earn money, but I found after working and with low wages and so many bills, I didn't have any more money for school than I did before. It's important to be dedicated to going to school, it's too easy to put it off and put it off until it's almost too late. I would tell this to myself if I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior.


If I could go back and talk to my self as high school student senior I would tell myself about all the great things Salt lake community college has to offer other than the friendliness and having fun we like to be serious to I am talking career wise. At salt lake community college they have a program for just about any career you would like to go into. I would also tell my self about the great experience I have been having because so far it?s great.


If I could go back in time and talk to my high school senior self I would tell her to stop running. That while life does get more stressful as you grow up, you will enjoy college and have nothing to worry about on that front. As long as you remember to breath.


If I were to go back in time to when I was a high school senior I would tell myself about all the oppertunities that my good grades could have got me into. I would show and tell the major I knew I was going into and the dreams for my future would come right in my hands. I talk about collge life and how everything works in the real world. More responsibilites are dealt with everyday. I would talk to the high school senior me and show her all the ways I could have been saving my money instead of spending it on things I didnt need. I could have invested some good money into an account for college. I should have spent more time looking for scholarships and applying for good colleges. I would still keep my mind on the school I am continuing going to now. Also I would tell the past me to take things a little more seriously than I did. The senior me wanted to get high school over with and didnt care too much about what the future had to bring for me. Iam glad with the results that got me here today.


If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior, I definately would have taken more college credit courses in high school. At my high school, you had to pay a one-time fee of $35 and you could take all the concurrent enrollment classes that you wished to take. Also, I would have saved more money in the years prior to enrolling in college because looking back, I spent most of my money on stupid and worthless stuff. Also, I would tell myself that in making the transition from high school to college easier, I would have told myself to go to the campuses for SLCC and wander around and to ask people about what they like about the campus. I would have also talked to academic advisors, and I probably would have signed up for more classes each semester.
