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

Wow! Oh what a grand thing it would be to go back in time! I would advise to stay steady on the course of creating a better life for myself, my children and my husband by obtaining a graduate degree. Don't get caught up in the drama of circumstances; high school years are great but graduation from that time period should be the gateway into responsibility and ultimately to becoming a positive, contributing member of society. In becoming a psychology major, I would advise to make sure to have great emotional support from family, friends and therapist; if for nothing else than just to check to make sure there are no mental meltdowns in the near future. Never take more than two or three psychology courses in a row. This will ensure maximum learning and healthy processing of ones own life. Overall have fun as you trudge the road ahead to adventure, knowledge, and power through education. It is something no one can ever steal from another. :o)

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

The only thing I wish I would have know was more about the order of registration; meaning new students versus returning students. Maybe they could instate a type of lottery to ensure that all students, new and returning, get a chance at pre-requisite courses so that there is more of a chance of not having to wait a semester; prolonging the order of classes needed to complete a degree or certification.

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

I took online courses to complete my B.A. It was convenient as well as interesting to learn to communicate effectively online. I am now going to attend SBCC: Santa Barbara City College. The campus is absolutely beautiful with bluffs overlooking ocean. There are plenty of peaceful, quiet places to study outside on campus with out being disturbed.

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

I would tell myself to take high school more seriously, from the first day of freshman year or better yet, freshman orientation. What I realize now that I wish I had then is that school determines your future, it is how serious you take school that will reflect your future and where you will be. I would have planned more, aimed for higher goals, dreamed a little more had I known that college would be this challenging. It's amazing how much we take for granted in high school where we have counselors telling us what classes to take and where to go. And now, you are your own counselor and you have to take the initiative to seek help and advice, it's in your own hands to plan for your future.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school is the environment and the vibe from the faculty and staff. It is very positive and motivating once you step on to campus because you know that each student is striving to get somewhere and every staff member does their best to help. The location is something to be grateful for as well; students study with a panoramic view of the pacific and can take breaks with walks on the beach.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

I couldn't think of any person who has any personality who wouldn't want to attend Santa Barbara City College. The college itself is very attractive and hard to think or find anything negative about it.

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

I would tell myself to utilize all resources to get information about different schools to attend and to start saving up money for college. Now the prices are going up, so I would definatley tell myself to start saving money for college. Everything is so expensive right now and the prices are still going up, so the earlier money can be saved up the better. I would tell myself to see counselors at least once a semester, maybe even twice. To take advantage of all the work shops, tutors and other resources available at school. It is so important to familiarize yourself with available resources. I would also tell myself to start looking for scholarships early. Financial aid and utilizing resources would be the most important things to tell myself to figure out early.

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

Honestly the resources at City College are great. All I needed to do was find the right department at SBCC to get my questions answered. I guess you could say that there is not really anything I wish I had known before coming to SBCC. The counselors in the academic and transfer center have helped me with everything I needed to know. Any question I have can be answered, this school is great!

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

The view and the great teachers. Santa Barbara City College is located right next to the beach. The view is amazing, the palm trees and beautiful blue water. During breaks I can walk along the beach and do my homework sitting in the sand. It is a pretty campus. All of the teachers I have taken are great. I love all of my classes and my teachers are very knowledgable. The teachers are very caring and are willing to help their students. There is nothing to complain about Santa Barbara City College it is a great school!
