    Got any tips/advice that you wanna give to an incoming College Student?

    Hello! I just recently graduated High School and am now approaching the begging of Fall classes at a Community College. Do you have any tips that you'd wish you would have known before going into college? I'd be extremely appreciative if you do.

    focus on finishing your major prep classes, this is really important.
    your first year at CC you want to try to get your GE classes out of the way (i learned this the hard way)
    try not to fall behind on classes, failing a class will hurt you, you could always retake it but you would be wasting time, i mean if your paying for your classes, might as well try your best.
    if u want to transfer in 2 years, take at least 15 units per semester (summer classes help as well)
    take advantage of your resources (counselors, stem center, library, tutors, OFFICE HOURS)

    i am currently attending a CC, going into my 3rd year, stem major so its taking a while to finish major prep classes, will be applying this year for transfer

    please ask if u have any more questions.

    On the first day of class, remember to make new friends, and get ready to study hard.
    You should make a study group cause those are really helpful if you are absent, or decide to skip class one day.
    Don't study last minute cause exams are really tough.
    Bring a laptop, or tablet during class. You can use it to take notes, or play games if you get bored from long lectures.

    What Hugo Boss said is key!

    What´s really important to me is organisation. That´s where learning starts and falls, if you are not organisated it´s hard to stay focused.
    Atleast for me that´s the case
    Good luck with College

    Considering my College is pretty much payed for because it's a CC, I'd have to say no.

    It's funny that this is the mentality.

    Community College =/= Lack of intelligence.

    Some people would prefer not to be stuck in office jobs and would rather be hands on in the trades or just like the general atmosphere of a CC then a university.

    I'd say there is no way you're older than 18 with that mentality. Laff.
    Been around these parts since '10.
