Back to School Today:

It’s my first day back to school as a senior in college. I look forward to meeting my classmates and professors for this semester. Sure, it might be difficult by taking a marketing and an accounting course, but determination will help you get through it. As long as I don’t procrastinate and always do my¬†homework ahead of time. Not to mention, purchasing textbooks before attending class for the second time which can be quite expensive at the school’s bookstore. Luckily, there is a website that you can rent at a lower price. When I have plenty of time on my hands, it’s good to walk to my two favorite places on campus: 1.) Recreation Center-where I can exercise for one hour and 2.) The library-where my homework can be completed and not have to worry about doing it at home. Since my classes are already showing online where I turn in my assignments, I have written down the majority of my assignments and quizzes that have deadlines stretching from August until the end of November, in my calendar. It’s nice to look at the syllabus before attending class and visualize what the professor will be assigning to the class.

However, to those who are going to college for the first time, have a great day and I wish you the best of luck out there. Remember though, have fun and take some free time to enjoy what your university offers. In other words, join some extracurricular activities. If you are a writer, write for your local university newspaper. Life is too short to focus on one thing at a time. Go out there and reach your goal to your highest potential. Never let opportunities slide by.

Selecting Your College & Major:

Months before you graduate from high school and plan to attend college, ask yourself, “What college do I want to attend and what college has a wide variety of majors I can choose from without struggling to pick one that might not be as beneficial and useless?” Research your top colleges you think could grant your requests. After you take the ACT as many times as you can to receive a higher score, send them to those universities and wait for their responses. If they all reply to your scores and accept you, congratulations. If one or two of them don’t, do not panic because you can and will be accepted. ACT tests might matter, but your high school GPA is how you can also get into college. The point of this blog post is to find your passion and choose your university choice wisely. You can reach for the stars as much as every student who has and currently are going to college.
