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

Every day that you walk through life as if you can hit rewind at any moment, realize that the rewind button you are counting on to be there is being phased out as we speak. That's right, everything you're doing is going on film, and that film is going to be your life. Make each day worthy of being recorded and watched by you one last time with no editing. Whatever happened in the past all happened for a reason. The important thing is to make those experiences, positive or negative, a strictly positive influence on what you do now. And, even more important, don't just know what you need to be doing, do it! Start acting on what you have learned from your life. I was once a high school student with a GPA below 1.5 or something tragically close. That ended with my getting a GED after a few years of not attending school whatsoever. And it had nothing to do with my learning abilities. But once I realized what I wanted to do with my life, I was able to start college with a whole new attitude and believe me, it?s working!

What's unique about your campus?

What kind of person should attend this school?

Budget your time wisely. In high school, the time you spent on your studies was structured for you by your teachers and your parents. When you get to college, nobody is going to force you to go to class or to go to the library to study. You are responsible for yourself. However, this new found freedom is a double-edged sword as college life is riddled with distractions. My best advice is to sit down after the first week of class and create a schedule of assignments and exams. Make sure you budget study time wisely - you may want to study 2-3 hours for every hour you spend in class. Additionally, it doesn't hurt to make a financial budget. No more home-cooked meals means that you have to feed yourself and food gets expensive real quick.

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

"Amanda, put that confidence you exhibit everyday here in high school in your backpack and carry it to all your classes. Use it anytime you feel overwhelmed with the course load and the expansive nature of college itself. Don't be shy, go out and make friends and play a sport. So what Wayne State does not have a Track and Field team, play an intramural sport...I heard they have a pretty cool ultimate frisbee team. Stay ahead in your class, and no more procrastination...you are only hurting yourself by putting things off until the last minute. College does not stop for you, so you have to go strong for it. Good luck...you might not need it, but a little luck and a lot of hard work can go a long way."

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I knew this before, but I wish I would have considered it more my first semester...that it really is up to the student to do well. You are given the tools, but it up to you to really sharpen and use them.

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

The main advice I would give myself would be to start applying for Scholarships and grants previous to enrollment. I will stress that having fun is not as important as achieving success with academic progress. I will also emphasize on staying focused, dedicated and hard working to obtain my goals and reach my potential to exceed my own expectations. The stress of college life will reward you with more than graduating high school!

What's unique about your campus?

I would consider Wayne State University's diversity as the best thing about my school. Being able to associate with people from all around the world broadens the mindset of an inner city youth. It gives me a chance to understand other peoples cultures, as well as dealing with different personalities and nationalities.

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

When I brag about my school I speak of the gowth within the last ten years of the University's existence. I can also brag about the school spirit in which most students take pride in. There is also a lot of student activities, concerts, and the recreation departments. It's just a wonderful college environment and an even greater place for your college experience.

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

I would make sure I liked the location of the University. I went to WMU my first semester and I hated it because it was in the snow belt and there wasn't alot to do there accept partying which I don't like to do so I ended up coming home practically every weekend. I love where Wayne State is located. It's downtown and it makes me feel like I am in a big city like Toronto, which I love.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

That they wouldn't accept my intermediate algebra class that I took at OCC because at Wayne State Trig was 2/2 and College Algebra was 1/2 so I now have to take another math class.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

I don't know. Most people commute so I guess people who don't like driving.

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

If time allowed me to go back in time and give myself advice, I would tell myself to enjoy college life more. Each day in college is a day full of new knowledge and experience. Therefore, I would stay focused on my academic pursuits, but I would also absorb my surroundings more because college is a time in my life that will shape me not only as a student, but as an individual.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I had know proper study skills. There is alot of work required from a student, and that is work is properly done is time is managed well and studying is done efficiently.

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

I would probably tell me to stay focused on my school work more, and try not to let anything distract me from my goal.

I wish I had known that it would be this demanding, and take up 95% of my time, yet its a lot of fun and everyone is helpful and supportive

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing i can think of might be the parking, it is really hard to find a place to park even with parking passes.
