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

If I could go back in time and talk to myself about college and college life I would tell myself to remember that college is there to better myself. I would say to not goof around and be serious because school benefits you when you apply for a job. It shows that you can start something and finish it. I would also tell myself not to overwork myself. Do not do more work then I can handle. Doing too much wears down your body. I would also tell myself to have some fun and to find the balance of working in school and having fun. Do not have too much fun that your grades suffer, but don't be too serious that your college experience is strict and boring.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school is that the students are more friendly and help each other out.

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

If I could go back to myself in high school I wouldn't change anything I've done other than to have better study habits. I have worked really hard to finish my AA in two years even after having a baby right after high school. I am determined to reach my goals and to get my degree, for me and for my son. I feel like I have done all that I can and I don't regret the way I did things and I have not slacked off. I would just tell high school me to keep up the good work and that everything is going to work out fine.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I usually tell them that they have really good teachers and that it is cheap so they do not have any excuse for not going especially because they have a variety of online classes that you can take too.

I would tell myself to try harder, and not drop any classes. I never can make up for lost time.

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

Don't ever settle for what someone else wants you to do with your life, or for what other people consider to be a smart career decision. While it is important to consider what you will do as a career, and to make sure it's a way to make a living, it is even more important to ensure that you choose a path that will make you feel proud of yourself, and happy. Sometimes, what you choose to do may not be logical or make sense to other people, but in the end, it's your education, your career, and your life. If you spend it worrying about what other people think, and doing what other people want you to do, that's when you have become truly lost. So never lose your way. Your first instinct is right...go for it!

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who isn't exactly sure what they want to do with their life, and anyone who is in favor of sound economic decisions.

What's unique about your campus?

I would have to say that the best thing about Ventura College is that it's so cheap. I just recently paid for my next semester and it was only $500. That was why I decided to go to community college before transfering. This way I was able to work quite a bit and save a lot of money before moving out.

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

Probably the most important advice I would give myself would be to meet with councelors regularly. As the first person in my family to attend college I had to figure out everything on my own. It was stressful and confusing picking out classes and making sure I would meet all the general education requirements. As a sophomore I have already seen a councelor twice to make sure I did all I needed to for transfering. College councelors are very helpful and are a resource I wish I had taken advantage of more as a freshman so I wouldn't be scrambling around so much now to get all my finacial aid, class requirements, and application stuff completed correctly and on time. My first two years of college would have gone a lot smoother if I had known this earlier.
