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


I wish I had known all of the costs! There are a lot of hidden fees that students aren't aware of before you come. I wish I had done more research because unfortunately I have to apply for loans now! I wish I had known what the campus life and environment of the school was like. I wish I would've known how independent living would be like. I wish I would have known what the teachers and the administrative office was like. I wish I knew a lot!


When I went in for Orientation and spoke to Admissions, they prepared me enough for my first quarter that nothing was a surprise. I was new to college, so the original element of surprise of overwhelming feelings were still there, but I was prepared enough to know that I was in a place where I related to every other student and enjoyed every teacher I came across.
