What I’d Tell My Freshman Self

Posted by Jade

There is a cliché phrase that “hindsight is always 20/20,” meaning that when you look back on things you always see them differently and are wiser than you were before. Some helpful tips I would give to myself and anyone as a freshman in college would be the following:

  • Make friends—it will ease your transition and make you more confident
  • Live on campus—it’s a good way to make friends and become acclimated to the campus
  • Study abroad—it’s an excellent experience to travel and study in a different country
  • Seek help early—don’t wait until you’re in your 3rd year to go see an academic advisor
  • Choose your schedule wisely and don’t be afraid to change your major; the average person changes careers 3 to 4 times, so feel free to explore early on in college!
