Something I wish someone had told me my freshman year: I wish someone would have told me that the first semester of school would be the most difficult. There was so much adjusting to do in terms of courses, work and just learning to be on my own. It was a long process, and I wish I had understood that sooner.

Major/minor/concentration: Applied communication with a minor in writing.
Organizational involvement: Tutor at the Kent State Stark Writing Center.
Something I wish someone had told me my freshman year: I wish someone had told me to not be so obsessed with graduating within four years. I overloaded my schedule in previous semesters because I thought I had to graduate on time, and I ended up really stressing myself out. Now that I’m more focused on the journey rather than the destination, I can go at a more relaxed pace, take some courses that I’m really interested in and enjoy my time as a student.
Stick around to see what the college prep/professional development team has in store for our classy readers!
