If you could go back...

And do something different your freshman year, what would it be? and why?


I'm going to Arkansas next year and want to make the best of my freshman year.

Study more and do my Arabic homework.

Basically, I wish I did an hour of homework for every hour I had class, and then worked out on top of that. I wish I had joined clubs then - more than just the pre-law society. And, didn't eat like crap every day. Contracting into the Army/AF/Navy/Marines would've been nice too; it's four years with a guaranteed job that looks good to grad schools.

Work harder and take pre calc at the local community college the summer before.

I'm sure alot of schools have a organization that focuses on campus entertainment. They invite comedians, magicians, bands, etc. to give a show or perform on campus. These kind of events are usually fun to go to.

on this note, take cool gen ed classes early. colleges make you take them for a reason. they want you to experience a variety of majors so you can make a good decision on what you want to study. don't go for the easy gen eds; go for the ones that interest you. give a philosophy class a shot. give a rec class a shot. give a computer science class a shot. assuming that they fit into your gen ed categories, the worst you are doing is getting some things knocked out. best case scenario, you find something that you love studying that you may not have thought about.

also, talk in class. answer questions. be active. developing a relationship with your professors will go a long way.

Warn the campus that someone would kill like 30 people. :virginiatechdodgy:

But that aside, my first semester wasn't as good as my second, so I would probably study a little harder. And party a little harder too. I didn't really get a feel for things until my sophomore year.

I got my first year of college done in high school, so I guess...nothing?



First year of "real" college just got over for me, so I can't really say. I would have worked harder in two or three classes that kind of ****ed me over, and I would have been more social.

This, it sucked because at first I would like my classes and then one or two would be so difficult or boring that I couldn't pass. But I would keep trying, wasting time, money and effort. I've lost a lot of energy and drive that I can't get back. Putting so much effort in and seeing no reward in return is devastating beyond words.

Having a girlfriend was a horrible choice. I can't emphasize this enough. I met a lot of girls that I never called cause I wanted to stick with my gf, then we broke up. I'm not ugly or anything, but I had girls coming up to me, introducing themselves, handing out their number, etc...that's not an opportunity that I see myself having again.

DON'T GET A RANDOM ROOMMATE. If your family can't afford it, offer to pay the difference yourself. Whoever is least considerate is the most comfortable in the dorms. I got stuck with a minister's son. Enough said.

If I had to do it over, I would have liked to start at community college and gone out of state after. I would have been a little more prepared for the college environment and I'd get a chance to experience something different.

Just finished my first year at community college and transferring out in the fall, community college was the worst year of my life. Academically i did great, but meeting people at community college is practically impossible unless you get the right classes with people in the same boat. Usually you get all older people or other kids who just want to go to class and then go home.

To keep on topic with the thread, I would have tried harder and pushed myself by taking more classes and actually studying more when it really mattered. Focus hard on your school work, but get involved with the social environment as well.

Broken up with my girlfriend three hours away. It failed miserably and I had a bit of a social handicap because of it. I would be too busy texting her to enjoy rushing a house. I put her in front of a lot of things and it was a mistake I don't wish on anyone. Also not take pre calc from a random professor with a super Indian past name. Never understood that guy

Did any of you rush and regret it? or vice versa, not rush and regret it?

I rushed and honestly I had my days freshman year where I doubted the decision but I honestly wouldn't trade it for the world now. Every colleges Greek system is different but feel free to PM me if you have any questions.
