What is your overall opinion of this school?

I enjoy being at Skagit Valley College, my professors are most likely available but often you need to make an appointment. The class sizes are the same size of a high school class and the teacher is most likely know you by name after a few classes. If you need to talk an advisors or counselors and they aren't available, you can talk with one of your professors or your department head to help schedule your classes. Every class is within walking distance of each other.

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

I have unique situation because as a highschool senior I was a sophomore in running start! If I could give myself advice I would tell myself to join clubs and attend more sports games. I would want myself to step more outside my comfort zone to make more social connections. It is harder to make friends while living off campus, so I really wish I would have been more outgoing and made more friends my first year of college. Not only do friends make college more exciting, but having peers to study with is am important part at suceeding in college.

What's unique about your campus?

I believe the best thing about my college is that there a wide diversity of students. I came from a highschool that very limited in diversity. The majority of my class was white middle class americans. At Skagit Valley College we have a wide range of culture, backgrounds, and beliefs. It diversifys myself and expands my social circle. I love meeting all the interesting people at my college.

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

Keep jumping through the hoops of the education system, even when they're on fire. While you're at it, introduce yourself to every person you meet; you never know who is a firefighter. For every flaming hoop, there is someone holding it up. Ask them questions; they know the tricks. When you've gotten through that obstacle, keep searching for the next. In the dark mystery that is your personal adventure, it might not be obvious which way to turn, but there are more guides than you think. Your parents or friends might not have every answer, but there are people who do. They are your firefighters and you are a professional fire hoop jumper. Keep jumping.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A dedicated student with the drive to succeed, who may be busy with work/family/commitments.

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

As a senior in high school there are a lot of different choices that you can make that will affect how well you will do in college and it will affect what college you go to. First, manage your time wisely. When choosing between hanging out with friends and getting your homework done. Homework should come first because you can always hang out with friends, but your homework has deadlines that determine your grades, and having a good GPA determines what colleges you can get into. Also apply for colleges and scholarships early because early applicants have a better chance in getting into their first pick schools. One thing that I would advise you to do is to get ready for harder work because high school is not setting you up for the amounts of homework and studying you have in college. Become independent so you do not rely on others to help you all the time. Set goals for yourself because without goals you do not have a reason to be spending the money on college. So senior in high school, make all the memories you can in high school and get ready for a new adventure ahead.

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

If I could go back in time and talk to myself before I started college, I would say one simply thing. Do not be afraid. I was homeschooled and entering college was terrifying. If only I could tell my past self not to waste so much time being afraid and try new things sooner, get involved in clubs sooner, and be more outgoing sooner. There are very few choices that I regret, but the ones I do regret I made because I was scared. I wish I could tell myself to apply for that internship, or addition for that play. I spent too much time being unsure of myself, attending college helped me to gain conference and discover who I am and what I want to do with my life. I used to be afraid of the world, but now the world should be afraid of me.

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

I wish I had known about all the services avalible to me and all the ways I could get involved with the commuity. I could have done more with my time, but overall I am still really happy with my expiriece.

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

If I were to have the opportunity to speak to my high school senior self, I would tell myself that it is okay to not attend college right after graduating. Going to college right after high school, I was thrust into adulthood and responsibility, as well as trying to navigate college. I was very overwhelmed trying to juggle all of these things. I believe if I had taken a year off to explore life, I would've better prepared myself to enter college being a more confident adult and more focused on my academics. I went into college not really having an idea of what I wanted to do, so I didn't feel motivated to attend classes or do well in them. Taking two years off of school allowed me to explore jobs and really find out what I was passionate about: taking care of people. Once I knew what I wanted, it was so easy to find the career that supported my passion. At that point, everything fell into place and I began to pursue a Nursing Degree. So high school self, I encourage you to take the time to discover yourself and all will work out!

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

That the Financial Aid Department was awful. Very behind the times in efficiently processing applications and very unaccessible for students. Staff can be quite unfriendly and condescending towards students needing help. I would compare my experiences with the Financial Aid Office to getting your Driver's License renewed at the DMV.
