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

I know you don't like yourself too much right now. I know you just want Mom and Dad to let you do what you want. But keep doing what you are doing. You're going to do it anyways. You're going to crash your truck and break your bones. You're going to ruin your college transcript by not trying. But... It's all part of a learning experience. They are all things you're going to look back and use as a tool to grow and to succeed. Don't beat yourself up about anything, be good to yourself. Grow from your mistakes and know that things will get different. You're not stuck. Contrary to what you think, everything is not your fault. Keep your side of the road clean and don't worry about anything else. You are exactly where you're supposed to be, even if it's bad. Find out who you are, the good and the bad. Go make friends, they won't bite and most importantly, Love yourself.

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

I would give myself the advice to be more open to new experiences. Entering the University of Texas at Brownsville, I was shy and timid. I would like to tell myself that the people I was about to meet would be benificial to my acedemic and social life.

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

If I could go back to high school as a senior then I would advice myself to be in the same position as I am now as a college student. I would advice my self thefollowing: keep myself more active in school organizations, keep my grades up as high as possible, apply for tons of more scholarships. Never let go of your hopes and dreams, college is different. Advice others of the reality of attending college. Prove my self that I'm worthy of others. But the one I care more about is that I would go back and tell myself to appreciate more of others.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing I cosider about my school are the students who give us a bad name, the students who drop out and dont graduate. Those students then go on saying that UTB is a bad school, while in reality people here don't want to try. I don't consider anything bad about this school, just the students.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

I'm no one to say what person shouldn't attend this school, I will only accept those who strive for success, who will perceive in achieving their dreams are tro be accepted.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

The unique thing about my school is relatively affordable to attend. Moreover, there are variety of scholarships available both competitive and non-competitive. I believe finance had been a major stumbling block for most youths in order to fulfill their destinies. My school made financial aid as a major focal point to work on in order to get youths back to school because, if students had a less worry about financial aid (tution, books and accomodation), there will be a larger number of productive graduates, which eventually turns to a better society and good for economy at large.

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

I would have better prepare for the challenges ahead. Also, i would take every course seriously without levity because everything been thought at High School reflects again in college but in an advanced way. The greatest advice I will give to myself is never to memorize just to pass the course(s) but to read, understand and assimilate every topic or course before committing it to memory, because, understanding a course will definitely have a lasting impression in someone's memory. Moreover, I would be a more studious student because of the challenges ahead and take serious of every advice given by the teachers, counselors and principal because they have been there before. Furthermore, I would take a dual enrollments in order to garner some college's credits while still in high school, because it prepares someone for the challenges ahead and ultimately, it makes the academic route in college more faster and to be ahead of my peers who fail to enroll for dual enrollments In high school. Lastly, paying the price will be my watchword. I will make sure I commit to my studies at the expense of pleasure because it pays at the end.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The major problem about my school is that some of the students are not college-ready due to their poor academic performances. Moreover, some of the professors are making the students too comfortable in their grades by using academic curve to the extreme. Academic curve gives undue advantages to some students despite of their porous performances in homeworks, tests and the finals. This favor eventually boomerang on the students whenever they go to another school out of the valley. They(students) found it hard to cope which leads to unproductiveness. I believe grades should be awarded based on merits.

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

Going back in time to where I was a highschool senior, I would tell myself to apply to as many scholarships as I can because it's a huge hassle trying to come up with the money. I'd also tell myself to get used to reading and giving up my social life because for the next couple of years, school is going to come first. In high school, I was never really involved in many extracurricular activities, and being in college now makes me realize that if I would've been involved, I'd have so many connections to different things. The thought of college being this difficult now makes me want to actually go back in time and make a few changes so I wouldn't have to be struggling now. It'd be fantastic if I could go back in time and do that, but I just have to make the best of it for now.

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

I wish I would have known that UTB and TSC were going to split up because they've been making a bunch of unnecessary changes.

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

Traveling back in time to a high school senior, the proper advice I would tell myself would be to choose a career pathway that could keep my family and I at a economical stability. Knowing that, the classes I may choose would be early as possible to finish to achieve the bachelor, masters, or even a doctrile degree. Through my college career, I would volunteer as many hours as possible to gain the proper hours for work experience.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about my school is that even though we say we are smoke free campus, students do not care and don't follow the rule.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person who does not want to acquire a professional degree to succeed in life.

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

My school has a lot of departments that can help any kind of students. There is the admissions office, the academic advising center, the financial aid office, two big library used by students daily and some other computers lab available as well. Some kinds of activities like orange crush are also organized to welcome freshman students and talent show to discover students that have artistic capacity. Moreover, my school disposed of a art center which hold a bunch of diverse events made by prominent artist all over the world weekly and monthly.

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

I wish i knew how to do a resume and satisfy all the requirements to get a job easily in school. I would've also wanted to be sure of the major i was going to study in order not to waste time in my career education. Another important thing, i would've liked knowing was that there were many scholarships opportunity that i could've applied to in order to help me in my education expenses and rely heavily on my loans.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

My school is known for having a great community. Our whole area works together to get people that live here an education. All of the schools in this area work together to help out the students. There is another university about an hour away, and they just formed some kind of alliance, to make it once school. Also, our school is right next to the border of Mexico, so there's a very nice culture change from what you normally see in the US.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

The school I'm attending is great, becuase it worked with me on transferring my associates degree from a technical school. It accepted my associates, and replaced theirs with it. It also accepted my academic core from the techinical school and replaced theirs. I'm not saying you shoulnd't take them at the university, but I didn't have the funds available at the time. So if you find yourself in a similar situation it might be a great fit for you!

I have learned many mistakes, for one is having morning classes. Two, don't cram all classes into one day. Three, always be prepared for class and plan ahead when the next assignment is due.

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

Hello Kanesha, it's you from the future returned to tell you about college life. Knowing how it is, I recommend that you get into as many extracurricular activities as you possibly can, it will look great when you go to apply for the four year schools you've been dreaming about. In addition to extracurricular activities, you might want to take your ACT and SAT test, although I know you want to take the easy way out of it by attending a Junior College, you'll thank yourself in the long-run. You're going to get a job, but don't let it detour your focus keep getting those A's you aspire for. Don't be too afraid to apply for any and all colleges, you'll be fine the right one will come through. Once you're in college do your best and make great friends and connections and enjoy the ride of your life.
