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

Dear "Self," College is freedom, freedom to choose your path, and to open windows you never thought existed. With a degree comes respect, and options. You can see the world, you can rise from ignorance and you can make a difference in the world around you. Since you were a freshman in highschool you have wanted to be a nurse so that you can help others and travel the world. That is what you were meant to do, you are one of the few that always knew what they wanted. So I know that your sick of school and cannot wait for a break, but do not follow your friends for the next two years waisting time. I know it seems like a lot of work, and it is, but you were meant to do this and your going to be good at it. So get organized and buckle down, because you will regret it if you miss your chance. Have fun and don't stop you will soon realize that all that work pays off.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

First and foremost I wish in highschool I would have completed some college courses before attending as a freshman. I also would have applied for scholarships and grants earlier. It was not until recently that I realized I needed to be in school. I took some time off after highschool and I have regretted every day. If I had known what a great experience this school has been I would have never left!

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

My school, San Bernardino Valley College, has an outstanding nursing program! I am very proud of this reputation, because I will be applying for their program in 2 years, knowing I will recieve a great education in nursing. In addition, my school has a great group of teachers. I have had few problems with any of my instructors, it truly seems that they care about their students and want them to do well in each class. Also, Valley has a wonderful library, it is kept very clean and peaceful for students to focus on their homework.

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

The best advice I would be able to give is to be careful with their timing. Time is our most important asset. Make sure you make enough time to study, take a test, talk to your teachers, and submit your college applications. If you learn how to manage your time everything will be a lot quicker and easier. Do not put to waste the most important thing in life, time.

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

if I could travel back in time and talk to myself about what college life would really be like, I would first off is a to be the concentrate more on English and my writing abilities. I would also tell myself to stay focused on the academics, and go a little easier on the social activities outside academia. I would also tell myself that joining the U.S. Navy would be an excellent idea, but only after completing my bachelors program at the University.

Describe the students at your school.

Classmates are varied, depending on which class one is taking. Overall, most students lead very busy lives. Students in one's night class usually are arriving from work, while students in morning or afternoon classes are taking the class in order to spend time with their families in the afternoon (or in order to work in the evening).The start of the semester is awkward, because one does not know who goes and who stays; it is after the drop date that one becomes friends with the smarter, more dedicated individuals.

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

Due to certain circumstances, I found myself in San Bernardino Valley College, but now that I know how college life is, I would have tried harder to overcome the circumstances in order to be better prepared for college life. I got away many times in high school by not reading the textbooks, but now I know it is absolutely essential to read the material beforehand for a comprehensive understanding in the class. In high school, I was very individualistic, accomplishing most, if not all, of my tasks on my own; in college, teamwork is crucial. Not to say I was antisocial in high school, just that the material was easier and I had no immediate need for study groups. In college, sometimes the material isn't clear, and within one's study group, other students can help clarify the material. Also, study groups provide support with classes. The most important thing, however, that I would also advise myself is to view the community college with an open mind. I did not like the community college status at first, and had a difficult time adjusting. Once I improved my perception, my college experience improved, as did everything else.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Intelligent, dedicated, motivated, cooperative individuals should attend this school, as the classes are to prepare one for transfer. A person that does not have any future goals of employing the information gained in the courses should not attend this school. Almost everyone has the goal of transferring; other individuals may be taking a class for fun and for acquiring extra knowledge, which is fine as well. The individuals that have no future goals, however, and do not know why they are studying should not attend this school; they provide many distractions to the class as a whole.

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

The majority of the students that attend SBVC are way below average academically, therefore it is extremely easy to maintain a 4.0 GPA.

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

Alan, fight for what is right. Do not let anything hold you back or set you back. Make sure the counselors get you the classes you need. Get up to speed on the classes you need for your major while you are in high school so that you don't waste valuable time taking prerequisite classes for four semesters. You should become involved in as many groups and activities as possible without affecting your grades. Maintain a 4.0 GPA and if you need help achieving that, then get help. You can do whatever you set your mind to do. Examine society and go make your mark.

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

If i were to go back in time in order to prepare myself for the world that would be to come, i would prepare the senior me by telling him that even though everything does not turn out as planned, it will all come together and work out to your benefit in the end. The best thing that one can do, is to "Never, Never give up." Don't go insane if you decide that you have to change your major, instead, look at is as though another door has opened, and the previous one has simply closed. It does not mean the end of the world! Also i would make sure that i clarified, that keeping in touch with friends is very important, and you should make sure that they know that you are alive. Remember the words of Walt Disney - We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

What kind of person should attend this school?

I believe that any kind of person should attend this school, including people that are trying to get their lives on track, and people that have everything planned out. These people would have a cheaper education, and know that they are getting a better education, rather than no education at all.
