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

I now live by the proposition that one is limitless in potential; the ability to create and define ones self is simply limited to the ability to think in a different way. I am passionate about this concept because when I was a high school senior, I was confined by the thoughts and judgements of my small school environment. College life is exceedingly different than a high school environment; it is about limitless choices and possibilities, discovering and defining who you will be the rest of your life, meeting people that differ in ways you never thought existed, and making a connection with the world that always seemed too far away to grasp. My high school self was very hesitant and anxious of the world, and I would be sure to demystify the distorted beliefs I held. It took quite a while to make the transition of acknowleging the infinite resources and choices available to me after I graduated. My main advice: the world is much bigger than you imagine, go with it and let college change your view of the world and yourself. Seize the opportunity and embrace the change.

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

This is school is still in a developmental phase. There isn't that tight knit school spirit, however you can be a part of the development of the big university atmosphere.

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

If I could go back in time and tell myself something to better myself in the transition of high school to college. I would tell myself that no matter how hard it gets, no matter how many test you flunk, no matter how many meals you miss, no matter how much blood and tears you shed and no matter how bad you want to sign out of the deal. You have to work insanely hard to get a great out come. I would tell myself to check out more resources for help and to never let the stuggle get to you. That you're not the only one struggling and to find others to make the journey with you. College isn't easy, and it won't ever change. Only you can get past the hard times and speed bumps that happen. Always give yourself a motivation to keep pushing through! That's what I would have told myself - so I would have pushed much harder than I did.

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

I would tell my self to make sure that I sign up for more scholarships. I would also tell myself to do better and work harder to et what you want. I would make sure that everything that I need for college was done. I would also feel out more college application out of state. I would tell myself to be a little more outgoing and to let go and have fun a little because life will not always go the way that you plan it to go, so be ready to make a change. I would also tell myself to go some where else and not stay in the town that you were born in. I would tell my self to get out more and met other students and not just be alone all the time.

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

The advice I would give to my high school self, would be to relax and not let people steer me away from what's really important. I would tell myself that I need to focus and search on what I really would like to do for my career and stick with it instead of doing what my family and friends want me to do. I would tell myself to stay strong and not let the little things get to me and to be patient. I would tell myself that I am my own worst enemy and as soon as I can conquer that obstacle, I will be able to breathe easier and will enjoy life a lot more.

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

If I could go back in time I would tell myself to enjoy life and not worry about everyone else. I was always so self conscious about my appearance and the fact that I came from a poor family. I would remind myself to focus on my education. Forget about the boys. They all turn out to be less than desirable after high school. A good education and the equation will equal itself out.

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

Looking at myself as a high school senior and giving college advice, I would give myself one good advice that would undo everything I did awful so far in my life. I would tell myself to listen to the academic adviser about classes and no matter what the college coordinator in a place called "The Center of Cultural Diversity", you will meet soon, says dont listen to them about Biology 191 because it is too advanced. The outcome is that you will fail and most importantly lose your Millennium Scholarship. I know how much you want to go to the University of Nevada, Reno, but if you enroll into Biology 191 the Spring 2011 Semester, It will end badly and end up transfering to Truckee Meadows Community College. I would tell my Senior High School self that special and deeply important information and advice. Also I would tell myself that If the advice is obeyed, the education in the future might be awsome than it is now, because now I am having financial aid complications in paying for college expenses. "Listen to the academic advisor, not to the college coordinator."

College is a very important stepping stone to a successful future. Concentrating on studies should be a number one priority. When you have reached the goal of graduating with a degree and have done so with the upmost commitment, then your life will posper in your personal, professional, and emotional life.

It is a very small college and it makes it seem more personal to each student. The facilities are new and very nice have facilities to serve all students.

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

Knowing what I know now, I would advise myself to take dual credit courses while in high school. By taking dual credit courses, it would have given me a feel for what college courses are like and what is expected from a college course. It would have additionally provided me with some college credit hours in which you can never have enough of.

What's unique about your campus?

I consider the local teacher base to be the best thing about my school. They are in tune with what is going on locally.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are a very diverse group. While I take many of my classes online, I have taken some in a traditional setting. There is nothing better than sitting next to a total stranger at the start of a semester and leaving best friends at the end of class.

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

Although I waited until my late twenties to start college, I feel that the benefit I brought to my college experience was dedication and drive. I know how hard life is, and raising a family while attending college has been a tough challenge. But, I know that if I put my all into everything I do, I will be rewarded when all is said and done. I love going to college and broadening my horizons so that I can survive in this world, hopefully in a fulfilling career. Working in a school cafeteria, I realized how important a college degree was for a successful career. I know that my prospects in finding a satisfying job are much, much greater, because I have put forth the effort and time to make myself a stronger, better person. It is alittle strange attending college with people much younger than myself, but there are more and more older students entering the college atmosphere. I guess they have also realized that to be successful, you need a college degree.

What's unique about your campus?

Texas A&M Texarkana is one of the only schools that will work with my schedule. I am not a traditional student and have to take many courses online or at a community college nearby that Texas A&M Texarkans has partnered with. Without this option, I never would have been able to attend college and raise a family at the same time.
