Stevens-Henager College-Orem Top Questions

What should every freshman at Stevens-Henager College-Orem know before they start?


If I could hop in a time machine, go back, and talk to my high school self the very first thing I would tell me to do is “take it easy, go slow, there’s no reason to be in a rush.” I was in such a hurry to get out of my parents’ house that I didn’t take time to really enjoy my teenage years. I also decided I did not want to go to college right away, and told myself that I would start “sometime.” That “sometime” took 30+ years to happen. I went so fast that I forgot about my promise to start my college career. It was so hard to get started back to school, I was 30 years out of practice, and learning did not seem as difficult as it is now. If I would have gone back to school immediately I think I would be in a much different place. I wouldn’t trade my life or experiences for anything, but I think going to school earlier would have proven priceless.


It's not easy and a lot of things are going to get in the way, but never ever give up. Keep pushing because time goes by more quickly then you can imagine.


Don't wait so long to go back to school. Believe in yourself.


I would tell myself to buckle down and study harder because it will help when I get to college if I obtain good study habbits in high school. I would also advise myself to make the most of every learning opportunity that comes my way in my last year of high school because it will benefit me in college and in life. I think the best advice I would give myself would be to hold on to my dreams and goals. Do whatever it takes to make them a reality and don't let anyone tell me "I can't do that" or that my goals are "too unrealistic". I would tell myself that I can accomplish anything I set my mind to if I really want to. And all it takes is making up my mind that I am going to do what it takes to achive my goal(s) and/or make my dream(s) a reaity.


Stick with it. Stay there, graduate


So far, college has been an eye-opening experience. It has made me realize that it's all on you in the real world; no one is there to babysit you like they did in high school. The instructors teach their classes in a way to make me want to come to class and learn. I don't dread doing homework anymore, because it's my money I'm wasting if I don't try. College is very valuable for growing up, it teaches you how to attack the future and how to be successful in your career.


My college experience has helped me shape the way I view things. Coming from a close minded home I was able to see things in a bigger perspective. I also learned many things about my self about how much I can handle, new challenges that come my way. It has helped me find a career that will help me and my family survive this hard economy. School is valuable to attend because the only way to find a good career to succeed in life. It is very important to gain all different kinds knowledge. Attending school is the only way to help our human society elevate even more to what is already is. We all need to attend some type of schooling to become better prepared for the times.


I have just attended the phy101 class so far, but it has been such a rewarding experance so far. We have learned to not be prejudice and to treat everybody the same, no matter their sex, race, or ethnic background. Everybody is the same.


As you enter you senior year in colloege remember to cherish this year as much as you can. Learn knew things. Be confident that you can succeed in life. Make sure you have all your core classes done and do the best you can. Don't settle for second best. If you have a dream this is were you start making it come true. As this year comes to and end you will have prepared yourself for college by taking con current classes. And this will be the beginning of your future. some one said, ?You may only be someone in the world, but to someone else, you may be the world.? (Anonymous) So go out and be the best that you can be!


When I was a high school senior, I thought that I knew where my strengths were and what I wanted to be when I grew up. Now that I am an adult and have had a lot of life experience, I have learned that my strengths are in different areas than I originally thought, specifically science as opposed to fine arts. Most likely, I would plant a seed that perhaps the direction I was heading was not the best for me. This information would hopefully inspire me to find my path sooner in life and be able to take the kinds of high school and college courses that I am now taking, the ones that inspire and drive me, unlike the courses I took when I first started college. It would be interesting to see where my life would be if I had started out in the sciences instead of the fine arts. Perhaps I would already be doing what I want to do. Hopefully I would have been more successful at college the first time around. I would have liked to have seen where that different choice would have led me.
