The first year of college should be taking seriously. Don’t waste your time taking classes that will not be counted as credits. So please, please take those placement tests seriously. You not want to get stuck taken classes that you actually needed in summer school or staying an extra year because you wasted time. Go to class on time professors actually take attendance seriously in some cases it can bring you up a whole letter grade.
I’m not advising you to join every organization out there but at least one, getting involved on campus will preoccupy your mind. The best part about college is that people genuinely care about you if you befriend them. When it comes to making friends in college, start a conversation with one of your classmates. There will be at least one person in your classes who is the same major as you, let this be your stepping-stone. Also, don’t just talk to them in class.
Crate and stick to a study schedule, is a common goal among college students. However, being disorganized is not helpful for me to start this semester. I would sprite study time from any other things that could distract my attention. furthermore, I would like to be involved by joining a club or organization at the campus, and that can help me to learn more and
You may think that because you are in college now you do not have to always go to class, which is not necessarily wrong. However, to be successful you should attend all classes. If you go to every class you will not be behind on any work or assignments which will lower stress and allow you to do other things. When choosing your classes do not pick classes and times that will overlap with other activities in your day, such as work. Trust me, I know you are going to feel like you have so much freedom in college but, you are not going to be able to succeed by not going to class.
First thing to remember, schools and teachers have been telling high school students to go to college when they’re done with high school for as long as I can remember. But sometimes going to college isn’t the best thing for you if don’t know what you’re going to do or study. But if you know what you want and know what you’re going to study then I find it very beneficial for you. A lot of students who are still in school are uneasy or unsure about going to college because of this bad thing called Debt. Debt has been a big factor in why students and teens don’t attend college after high school.
The research data was read, reread, the results that was students was talking a about a desire for education, learning, personal goals, family goals or influence. Going to college that far away from home. If your parents drive you crazy and can’t seem to get away from the annoying sibling, college is the answer! Put as much distance between yourself and them. Sweep all your problems under the rug so you don’t have to deal with them.
Many people have friends at school and that is the only time we see them. I know that this is why many people come, but you really need to focus on your career because once Junior High ends you are already in highschool and after that you are in college and this will determine what path you want to be on. Relationships at school with friends and God are different than being in the real world. At Escondido Christian School you are allowed to freely speak and talk about God without being judged and yelled at. Even at public schools now they don't allow you to freely speak about your religion.
I want to go to college because it is an amazing experience and opportunity that not everyone has the privilege of receiving. Before my freshman year of high school, my dad told me about how right before he graduated high school, his parents sat him down and told him that he could not go to college. They did not have the money, nor the resources. My dad had straight A's and worked a full time job throughout high school, and had saved enough money to take the ACT and apply for some schools. He ended up working his way through college, graduating Georgetown with a masters degree, and he now owns his own consulting company.
I am one of those people who believed whatever happens in movies at college, actually happens in real life. Well that wasn’t the case for me. I remember my high school teachers telling me that professors don’t care about their students nor do they make exceptions, while that is partially correct, it is not as bad, as I thought it was. Also, I was kind of prepared for university by my senior class teachers, who tried their best to make it feel as if we were in college. Before attending UC Davis by few weeks, I thought I would make a lot of friends and have more strict professors, but that’s not how it went down.
High school students/incoming college freshmen deal with pressures of choosing whether they want to go to college aside from just if they want to go at all. It’s difficult to make a rational decision about college when parents, educators, politicians and really, society in general is pro college. When choosing to skip college to pursue your own higher education, one is doing what many look down upon. This is the unnecessary fear that should not surround college; not that purposefully skipping college will ruin your life, but that mindlessly attending college (or graduate school) may lock you into a huge pile of debt that may not have needed to have been created in the first place. Though you may lack the real college experience today’s world seems to vaunt, there are plenty of cheaper alternatives than attending a four-year institution, such as a community college, two-year institution, or online classes.
