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


i wish i would of known that the only person that will take care of me is myself. my transition from high school to college was confusing. in highschool teachers would baby me telling me to turn in my homework, letting me turn in late-work, make-up test , the staff would know where every student was , i would recieve daily emails letting me know what was for homework . in college no one is here to remined me to do my homework. teachers don't care if i miss class its my responsibility to stay on top of my work.


The school does try to cater to non-traditional students. It was by chance, I was passing the halls and notice fliers catering to non-traditional students especially women re-entering the school system. If I had known then what I know now, I would have looked into the program earlier before.
