As cliche as this question may be, my response will probably be even more cliche, so beware. I believe that what I knew before coming to college was all that I needed to know. The way I see it is no amount of knowledge or warnings can prepare you for the college experience;. this is becasue every school is different , every individual is unique; therefore, an experience can never truely be taught or prepared for. In essence, i believe that an experience can only be understood by living that experience; college is the perfect example. Everything happens for a reason.
I wish I had none how hard some of the subjects and classes were before college. Going into college, I wasn?t prepared for some of the material and challenges of college that have now become benefits. This college takes a lot of work to succeed in; but it?s extremely rewarding when you can look past the black and white of an issue and further analyze it. Going to this college has really opened-up my mind to different possibilities in my life that I would have never considered before attending it.
What exactly I wanted to do with my life. And actually took in the amount of money I was spending for the exchange of services : education, facilities, etc.
I wish I had known more about the living arrangements and more about the work out rooms.
How demanding the classes were and also how to juggle sports and school work.
I wish I had known more about the history of the school.
That the school was in a high level snow plain....
