freshmen

(*This piece may have a limited audience - but don’t ALL my pieces??*) Some of the best advice from my Fro-Co (seniors who volunteer as freshman advisors): If you’re stuck in your room (due to the pandemic) open the windows. Exercise every day - outside if you can (pandemic). YOU, ain’t ALL THAT. Get used to it - maybe you were hot-crap in high school - but not HERE. You got a 1590 SAT and a 34 ACT score? Congratulations, you’re one of the average students. Never, ever, EVER miss a class (as a freshmen). Visualize your morning the night before and GET UP EARLY. Time management - TIME MANAGEMENT - TIME MANAGEMENT Complete assignments as soon as you can. You’re going to have 4 to 6 hours of homework every night - STUDY Procrastination will kill you - STUDY Go to events - be social - but leave early. “Popularity” isn’t important here - this isn’t high school. Don’t expect to meet besties right away. Don’t go to frat parties alone. Hookup culture can be toxic. Don’t date seniors - just don’t. Never get a razor cut, your ends will split.

I’m 60…well in a few days 61, but I still appreciate this piece! I remember when my son was proud of his SAT score until one University came calling and it didn’t even get him in the door…lol. Reality hits hard. (Nevertheless for him, he is very successful. - not the point I’m trying to make…lol) another fave, truth be known!
