To give my all, even if it means cutting down on social life. But never let school get in the way of being invloved in church or family events

That is it very accessible and many students can attend while living close to their parents.

Some instructors are either too leniant and don't teach you much, or the other extreme, where they are too hard on the students and most fail the class and get discouraged.

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

If I could go back in time and talk to my high school self I would tell me to take advantage of all the scholarship help I can get. I was not prepared to pay almost $500 straight out of my pocket for two classes this first semster at SCF. I relied too heavily on recieving a Pell Grant (which in fact, I did not qualify for). Luckily this semster my classes required no textbook due to the fact that it was porovided online. Now I spend an hour a day researching and applying for scholarships online.

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

I brag the most to my friends about the great class size and the one-on-one help you can recieve from your proffessors. So many people in big univerisities complain about the overwhelmingly large size of their classroom (which, irronically, is actually being held in an auditorium) and how they can't see their professor all the stage floor.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about SCF would be that if it rains there are no awnings over the sidewalks inbetween buildings. So for instance, if you need to get to your bio lab from the lecture and you have your laptop with you, then you are going to have to find away to get across the walkway without ruining your laptop or books and notes.

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

If I could go back to my high school self and talk about college, I would say that SCF is not a bad school. I would tell myself that I would meet my very best friends here and that I would really figure out who I was, and what I wanted to do in life. I would also tell myself that I dont need to worry about how long it takes me to get my degree, because not everyone takes four years, some people need some extra time.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who wants to be challenged academically. This school is mainly for adult students and for students who dont really have a plan.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

There were not many clubs and school activities.

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

If I had the chance to re-do my whole highschool years I would. If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a highschool senior I would say, " Stay focused, make decent grades, and make yourself happy instead of trying to please others." My grades in highschool was not a solitary representation of what I really could do until I got into my senior year. During my senior year I didnt have alot of time for errors academically because I played around all through 9th-11th grade. I wanted to graduate and I knew that if I didnt attend college I wouldnt make a decent living. So at that moment and time I decided to not please others and please myself doing what I needed to do for myself. So I stayed focused on my goals and now am enrolled in college.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

The classes at my school are very small which I like because it allows me to really get into the material I am learning and it is easier to ask questions.

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

I would have definitely applied myself more to get into better schools. You truly do not know how important high school is until your applying to college.

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

Dear Kendra, Congratulations on your high school graduation! You must be getting excited for college and all the freedom that comes along with it. But just remember that college is not all about your social life and having fun, you are going to college for school, so please have your priorities straight and put your studies first. I know you are probably upset that mom and dad are making you pay for your college tuition, but it will really make you take your studies seriously since it’s your “hard earned money” that is being spent; believe me it really is a blessing in disguise. Get involved on campus, it is a great way to meet people, I promise that you will not regret it. Keep your chin up and follow your dreams. There is a significant amount of time and money that is spent on a college education, however it is a great investment and will open many doors for you in the future.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

My school is very future forward, adding new academic programs, changing class criteria to met todays needs, using inovative learning strategies, and creating well rounded graduates.

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

Before coming to college I wish that I had known how much hard work school really is. Attending classes, working part time and trying to juggle family and social responsibilities is very difficult. Learning time mangement skills is very important to being a good student and still being able to maintain all of your resposibilities. College allows you to step up and become the person you always wanted to be regardless of where you came from. College really pushing you to your limits and then builds you up a stronger, smarter person.

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

Rachael, You have always wanted to know whats coming so you could plan ahead, well stop. Quit worrying just go with the flow. You’ll have ups and downs but a time will come when everything works out. College will test your problem solving skills not only in the classroom but in life. Transportation, books, and housing are no longer someone else’s responsibility. Save your money and keep working hard. Balancing work and school will be difficult but keep faith. You have always been good at balancing activities in your life. Remember to never compromise your dreams. You know what you love to do, this is your chance to pursue it. Take classes you will enjoy while staying on track. You don’t want to get all the way through school just to realize that what you have spent the last four years learning is not what you want to do with the rest of your life. With that said, there is nothing wrong with changing your mind. Better now than never, right? Most importantly, trust yourself, stay true to who you are, don’t forget where you came from and love those around you. Remember moms always right!
