10 Things You Would Tell a College Freshman

1)  Take one class each semester that is a fun class!  You’ll have plenty of “have to take” classes – so you need one that you can enjoy and relax with.  It may be one of the “have to take” classes – but it is one that you enjoy.

2)  Make sure you get enough rest.  College can be busy – but, you’ll need your rest to do well.

3)  Be selective in choosing your friends – take time to get to know new people before accepting them into your circle of friends.

4)  Eat well-balanced meals!

5)  Treat yourself to something each week – it doesn’t have to be something big.  A nail polish, a nice smelling soap, an ice cream cone.

6)  Learn who the “good” teachers are – they will be the ones who will challenge you.

7)  Have an outlet of some type to blow off steam – whether it’s listening to music, going for a walk, or vegging in front of the tv for a few hours. 

8)  Make good use of the library – it can be a great place just to get away from it all and study.

9)  Stay safe and travel in pairs if you go off campus – or at least let someone know where you are going…

10)  And, above all ENJOY THE EXPERIENCE!

    What an EXCELLENT list that is, Sara! Your list should be on a sheet of paper posted in the dorm room of every college freshman and in a handout to those who are commuter students!!!
