Starting high school now seems like nothing compared to starting college. In high school, you receive everything on a silver platter. All you have to worry about is keeping your grades up to pass the class. And in your junior year, you start to think about college.
Now that college has arrived, I did not know what to expect. I was nervous on my first day. The fact that I didn’t know anyone made me even more nervous. College is really different from high school. There are no bells that tell you when a class starts and when they end. It’s your own responsibility to arrive to class on time. Also, you can pick your own classes that are necessary for the pre-requisites. The teachers are really nice, too. They do assign more work and you have study a lot, but that’s college. College is about studying more in depth for what you want to major in. I really like this school.
I’m really grateful for my parents who help and support me in attending college. Without them, I would still be battling myself on either going or not. They were proud that I graduated high school, and they are even more happy now that I’m a college freshman. I am the first in my family to achieve these two steps.
I’m looking forward meeting new people and graduates to help me along the way of college so I can graduate on time. I know it won’t be easy, but that’s why I am determined to work hard and to never give up. I really hope to know the school better and the teachers and students so my experience in a new school would be more rich and full of life. 🙂
