College Bound - Why college is better than high school...
Here are some suggestions for making the most of a post-secondary education. The “college experience” is expensive, so get your money’s worth.
But what does that mean, exactly?
1 - Show up on time for classes prepared to listen and take notes.
2 - Perfection is only approachable, not obtainable - there will be setbacks.
3 - Understand student loans before you sign. In fact, understand anything you sign!
4 - Don't annoy professors with excuses.
5 - During class, be listening not multi-tasking.
6 - Enjoy in moderation - remember why you are in college.
7 - Personal responsibility - be aware of placement exams, speak to your professors, be aware of drop dates, avoid denial, keep your parents in the loop (good and bad).
8 - College is a big change - mental health services are always available
9 - A college education is a gateway to lifelong learning, not necessarily a six-figure income.
10 - Explore a variety of interests from the buffet of learning in front of you.
Why College is Better Than High School
1 - Freedom to evolve into adulthood
2 - A wide variety of friendship possibilities
3 - More open-minded and accepting people
4 - Options for creating your own schedule
5 - Everyone has worked hard to get the opportunity to learn.
6 - Usual amenities include pool, gym, dining options
7 - Freedom to manage your time
