University of Phoenix-Online Campus Top Questions

What should every freshman at University of Phoenix-Online Campus know before they start?


Vince Lombardi said it best "Success only comes before work in the dictionary". Remember to always strive to meet your goals, and never let anyone try to talk you out of what you really want to do with your life. There are many ways to complete those goals so look outside the box there are options! It is a long bumpy road so be sure to buckle up and enjoy the ride - since this ride will be the one to pave the way of your future success.


I would have told myself to focus on school rather than other things in life. Because I was pregnant by 16 . Although I graduated highschool I did not get the oppurtunity to go to an actual campus and or experience campus life. I would not have chose to attend university of phoenix but rather the schools i was accepted in. Dont wait. Waiting is hard and causes a major education block....


I would tell my high school self to take high school more seriously. I would do a lot of things over if I could. I would have been more involved in clubs and extracurricular activities. I would have paid attention to my grades. My biggest regret is not going to college directly after high school, I was afraid of the unknown, now I wish I would've took the risk. So I would advise all seniors to not be afraid to jump out into the world of education. I feel like I have missed so many oppourtunities. If I knew then what I know now!


The greatest advice I could give my high school self would be to go to college right after you graduate. Take the summer to have some fun, but then get right back to the books. Don't get married twice, have a kid, and then decide to go back after 7 years. Doing all that before college makes it more difficult to gain the momentum you once had for studying and the like. Also, never give up your dreams for a guy; the guy may not always be there, but your dreams and aspirations will be. Do not put your life on hold; take it for all it's worth while you still have the time.


I would recommend that you discuss your options with a school counselor in high school. They will help you understand the process in applying into schools and guide you with resources to use based on what you want to be when you grow up. Also direct you to someone who can help you with minority scholarships and mentor during your attendance at college level.


If I could go back in time and talk to my high school self about college, the advice I would give myself would be to really buckle down during my senior year and get the best possible grades that I could. This would allow me to develop a really good work ethic toward college work and studies. I would tell myself to make sure that I study A LOT when I do get into college. Sometimes the first few months in college can be vey different from high school, and it takes some getting used to. Lastly, I would tell myself that I am going to be great in college and that I am going to come out of it with many skills to help not only in my future career, but in the rest of my life.


I think that I would have told myself to push my parents harder to use the scholorship for the beauty academy that I was awarded as a senior. My parents were not supportive for me to to go there, because it wasn't a "real" college, so the scholorship that I won just went to waste. As far as me going back and telling myself to not worry about what the other kids thought, use your brains that you're gifted with, spend your time studying- it will be worth it.... I'm not so sure that I would, and here's why. I love my husband. I love my kids. They are a result of the path I had chosen. I chose the person who I used to hang out with, who set me up on a blind date with my now husband twelve years ago.. Sure, I might be some successful person somewhere fabulous, but I love my life- and I have the power to make it better. This is the very reason that I decided to go back to school. I have my passengers, now we're going for the ride.


Well, Lori here you are a senior. You have worked hard to get where you are. College is hard yes, but it is fun. It is different than high school. You will have your general education classes which does require. You can get help do not be afraid to ask for help. Do this now. It is harder when you are married and have kids but you can still do it. If you are unsure of what you want to do it is better to wait until you are sure. This is your future. Remember, no matter what you decide to be true yourself. Work hard don't lose focus on your goals but also take time to enjoy life also. You can do whatever you set your mind to with dedication and hard work.


Go straight into college dont take no breaks or short cuts. life is what you make it .


First and foremost, I would tell myself to not get distracted on enjoying the non-career life. Also, I would tell myself to look into many options of college, either away or near home and get information on the colleges that interests me first. I would also tell myself that college is very important and to attend a college right away before I lose interest. After going kindergarten through high school, I know that college doesn't seem so fun being "back to school" but it's a very smart decision to do so and it will pay off in the long run when you're living your dream you had back as a kid.
