Dont be afraid to get tutoring. Not everyone goes into college a genius.


I wish I had known more about the little things on campus. For example, I wish I had known just how accepting and diverse the school is. No mtter what sexual orientation or race, everyone can feel welcomed on this campus.

I wish that I was more prepared for living on my own, and knowing what it would be like to have such a rigorous course schedule. I wish I known about the big differences in class structure between college and high school. If I could go back in time and give the younger me advice on what to expect at college, the most important thing to focus on would be dedicating time and effort to each and every class equally, and knowing that with hard work and determination I would be able to get the grades I wanted.


I wish that I had know that there would be so many opportunities to get involved, I missed out on some of the activies because i hadn't known they were occuring.
