Some Things Take a Couple of Years to Learn

Posted by Evelyn

As a freshman, going into college is new and exciting. You are bound to get lost on a campus as huge as CSULB, you buy all your textbooks before the first day of class, and you pay attention to all your teachers. I have learned a lot since then and here are some of them:


  1. Wait until after the first week to buy your textbooks. Your teachers don’t expect you to have it anyways and some teachers don’t even require that you have one.
  2. Get to explore your campus because then you learn shortcuts on getting to your classes.
  3. Make at least one friend in your classes; you never know when you’ll need their notes.
  4. Get advising done at least once a year to make sure you are on track!
  5. Don’t ever lose the passion and excitement for school. College will be one of the greatest times of your life!
