So far my college year has been very calm. I’m not as stressed out as many of my peers partially because of the fact that I didn’t choose many of the harder classes like chemistry, calculus or physics. I did this because I wanted to ease into the college life so I will be used to the schedules and activities before taking the more intense class. Diablo Valley College (DVC) is a nice school with a larger campus compared to other community colleges. The campus and its features make my opinion of it more positive despite it not being my first choice of college that I wanted to go to. It was hard getting accustomed to it because it was so big compared to my High school. I eventually settled in and started to make friends and participating in other activities like joining the Rotaract club. DVC offers a wide arrange of clubs like a Chinese club, several performing arts clubs and several community service clubs which help when people are trying to make new friends.
In the beginning, choosing class schedules can be hard for some students. I recommend visiting a school counselor before choosing the random classes that won’t help or classes that can make transferring even harder. Counselors can help students choose their whole schedule up to their last semester which relieves students of the stress of registering for classes. My classes so far have been pretty simple, do the work, study for the test and you would usually get an A. If you are struggling you can visit the many services which help with tutoring. Some professors may be unpredictable so use rate my professor to check them before registering. I have done most of these tips and my semester has been going fine, so far.
