Things to Know Before Going to College: Community College Version/ My Experience

Many high school students, along with older people, are planning to graduate soon. Some may be going to a university, while others go to community college. I am here to give some tips on going to college for the first time.

1. Professors will give you a syllabus. This is literally the guide to their class. If you lose your first copy of the syllabus, then you can easily retrieve it via the internet (mostly they are on your ecampus site or even the professor’s email). Also for some classes you wont even have to use them because your profressor will talk about deadlines when they approach. 

2. Unlike high school, the other students in our class may not care to build a friendship (or anything for that matter) with you. If you are a very social person, then I would highly suggest that you join a group/club around campus or even volunteer on campus. 

3. There is a police presence, so do not think you will get away with illegal activities. When there is no police around, ther is a camera somewhere. In addition, check with your campus on what is prohibited. For example, any sort of smoking is against the rules at my community college. 

In conclusion, it is important to go into college with an open mind. It is a great time in your life, so live it up.
