If I Had Known Then What I know Now..

I’ve always told myself I would’ve graduated on time two years ago. If I did, I would not have the knowledge that I have now. “Things I Wish I’d Known in College” by culpwrit posted by @Uandrews  caught my eye because there are certain lessons that can be passed on to college students so that they are aware that college isn’t about going to class. College inspired me to not give up on myself nor my education after being told I was not college bound. In addition, here are my tips below. Feel free to add to the list!

 If I Had Known Then What I Know Now(In addition to  “Things I Wish I’d Known in College” by culpwrit):

  • take electives that interest you and that you could minor in
  • Always understand and double-check behind your advisors
  • Make sure all paper work is completed
  • Know the consequences if you have to transfer
  • Begin writing your resumé before sophomore year
  • how important your GPA is even in your first year
  • ALWAYS read the syllabus (it will haunt you if you don’t)!!
  • Try to understand the reasons why professors need certain assignments to be completed
  • Lastly: Make a list of your talents by your sophomore year to narrow down what major you want to declare

 

I would not change how long it took me to earn my college degree  because it taught me life lessons and skills that are needed in the professional work force. What would you add to the list? What have you learned outside the classroom during your college career?
