Best Part of College

The Best Part Of College

Let’s face it, many high school students are fed up with school and they cringe at the idea of looking into another book or listening to another teacher talk about when an assignment is due and how it should be done. It is almost like college is just another way to imprison the youngsters; and although it may sound pessimistic it may be a fact for some (not all of course). Trust me when i say it, college life is going to better than high school.

 

You Can Make Any Schedule You Want

You practically have the freedom to choose when you want to go to school. You can literally chose to go only two days out of the week and dedicate the rest to either studying or spending time with friends and family. You are not pressured with a redundant neverending schedule that  takes up Monday Through Friday. Now of course you can fill up your week and even weekends with school, but that is the beauty of it: you do not have to!

 

Your Professors Are Only There To Help And Guide You

Unlike your high school teachers; your professors will not hold your hand! They are there to give you the lecture of the day and send you off with an assignment. Now I am not telling you to not pay attention to them or to disregard the services they provide; but I am saying that you have even more space and freedom at college. You are treated as an adult and will be viewed as one as opposed to your high school teacher who threatens to call parents. In college you are your own boss and you are responsible for yourself! So be wise.

 

No One Is Cooler Than You

High school was all about cliques and what is popular but in college the only thing that is cool is graduating and getting a high GPA. No one is worried about the other and people do not interfere in the business of others. Those who attend college are there to perfect their skills and achieve their goals. College is a whole new environment and i barely scratched the iceberg. There is still so much to see and I guarantee that if you dedicate yourself to furthering your academic career you will be a wonderful place in a few years.

College Visit What To Take

What To Take on Your College Visit

You have set up your college tour and you are more than excited to visit what can potentially be your future school but in all the hustle and bustle you forget to sit down and think about what exactly is it that you need to pack for this visit.

 

Pack Some Comfortable Clothes

This has definitely got to be one of the first things that pops into your mind. You need to make sure you are dressed in accordance to the weather of the city in which the college is located. So dress appropriately and enjoy the trip!

 

Pack A Backpack With Provisions and Necessities

You are going to want to have a pack with either snacks or phone chargers. You are going to want to take notebooks for notes and perhaps even a list of questions to ask the tour guide. A backpack can be very useful since if there are any hand-outs or items that are given to you you can easily put them away and not have to carry so much with your hands.

 

Take A Partner

This may not be an item you can easily pack but by having a buddy with you the experience may be even better since you can have someone to co-op and share the experience with. Ultimately the final decision will always be yours but it is always good to have a second opinion.
