What Will Make Your College Experience Better

These SUGGESTIONS are only just that! Suggestions.... I found my personal high school experiences improved as I did these things.... This is NOT THE ONLY WAY to be successful in high school, but it was my method of learning.....

  • What really mattered in high school to me was the opportunity to build friendships. Making connections was one of the most rewarding, and positive experiences I took from my high school experience. Making a few good friends and having a few great teachers is worth more than anything I was taught over the course of the four years of high school I've experienced.
  • Joining the professional club called the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), participating in student activities forums, and trying other larger group activities to expose yourself to the greatest variety of new people builds networking skills.
  • Be a part of the clubs, with the most people, and hang out with them in and out of school to increase your chances of meeting more people. Finding someone you know, having an instant study-buddy, or partnering with a familiar face in a class makes participation more valuable.
  • Choose classes by the teacher, not the subject! The best experiences I had were when I enjoyed taking the teacher, knew the teacher's style, attitudes, and expectations. This always made learning fun, easier, and gave me the confidence to stretch my wings.
  • Enjoy a bigger school rather than think you miss your smaller school... I have attended smaller-sized, medium-sized, and larger-sized schools. I found the increased population offers so many more opportunities than any negatives....Being ready for a fast-paced, larger school for me made sense because it is exactly what you can expect in the workplace and most colleges... So why not learn how to now?
