Tennessee College of Applied Technology-Memphis Top Questions

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


I would tell myself to not be part of the crowd. I would say to stop worrying so much about having fun and keep my focus on my school work. The D's I got in school were no help for my future. Knowing I wanted to go to a four year university and couldn't because of my A-G credits, I would tell myself to be on top of my credits and be in the class I need instead of letting the counselors put me in just any class. I would simply tell myself, don't worry about people around me and keep to my education because those same people won't be around later on and I'll only have myself to blame for not doing things right. All I can tell myself now in the present is that at least I'm in college, on the road to success.


If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior I would tell myself to be more attentive in class and be in all classes because even though I graduated there was always more that I could have learned. I think it goes back farther than my senior year because my freshman and sophmore year was what I didn't take serious. As a senior I would have told myself to work harder to correct all mistakes that I've made earlier in life. I believe I shoul have taken my whole high school experience seriously because being a young person I didn't want to believe what everyone was saying. Just being young no one really wants to understand or listen to what older people have to say because as younger people we all believe that no one can tell us how we should do things. I believe that when it comes to education we all should listen to our elders because they try to encourage to do better that they have done in their life. Every senior should think about how they should spend their senior year and make it the best.
