University of Phoenix-Iowa Top Questions

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

Joel

Take a four year school, don't get stuck on what you're looking at now. Also do continue to work at living on or off campus, but not with your parents, it's an experience that you'll look back on for many years to come. When studying, work to study in groups at times, not only by yourself. It's easier to stay focused on the subject and getting ideas from different perspectives sometimes helps. Also, the friends you make in college, especially those in the same field, can have benefits later in life. Knowing people helps with finding work as well as having support in difficult times. Finally, remember that you're working toward your career and future after school, not just towards the next test and grade. The material you will be taught needs to stay with you, so find times to review subjects even after the class is finished. It may seem like a pain, but it will help further down the road when you will need that knowledge again. College will be fun and a great experience, just keep working hard and you'll meet your goals and be happy with yourself.
