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


If I could go back to myself as a high school senior and talk to myself about college life, I would have a lot to say. For one, I would explain the events I have been through in my life since graduating high school without going straight into college: the jobs, the bad decisions about life, always feeling like I was missing something in my life and trying to fill it with bad things. Then, I would tell myself that even after eight years, going to college was an easier transition than I thought it would be. I would tell myself even though I was unsure of what I wanted to do, that I would have a couple years of getting my general courses finished that I could have used to figure it out. I would explain that even though I was worried about the financial part of it, after my parents paying for my brother's college, that financial aid options are available, and that since I had no job at the time I could have qualified for grants. Mainly, I would tell myself to just go for it, and hope that she would have succeeded.
