For starters, I absolutely wish that when my high school teachers told us as students that professors weren't going to prepare notes on the blackboard or overheard for us, I believed them. I wish that I had known that buying snowboots was actually a neccesity. I wish I knew that keeping a pet fish isn't as easy as it sounds. But, most importantly, I wish that I had known before I came to school that everything was going to be okay. I was going to make it. I was going to survive it. I could do it.


I wish i knew about oppurtunies for school, also getting recruited for football isn't easy.

I only wish that I would have taken more opportunites to be involved on campus and to take advantage of such programs as Work/Study. Looking back, it would have provided me more time to be involved and more time to devote to my studies.


Not to be an RA.


I wish I had known how disappointing the cafeteria food was.


I wish I had known just how expensive it would be, and that it is impossible to finish any bachelor's degree in 4 years (8 semesters). It ALWAYS takes longer no matter what degree program/major you are in.


How expensive it is. Even though it is a good school, it would have been much better to attend a less-expensive community college for the first 2 years to get core classes out of the way, and then transferred to Utica College for my bachelor's.


I do not wish i had anything before school because i put my trust in God and he is my sustanence.


How much everything would cost.
