Freshman Year Taught Me…

Freshman year of college has come to a close, and I have learned so much! As I was writing this list, it seems like a lot of these things are negative, but they’re really not! They’re super important life lessons, and as we all know, life lessons are all rainbows and butterflies. Freshman year was difficult for me because I’m not one to engage in the typical college culture (aka Greek life and drinking). I mean I’m typically in bed and asleep by 10:30…even on weekends. So, here’s what freshman year taught me!

A Look Back at Freshman Year

It’s over!!! Summer here I come! I honestly can’t believe that I’m done with my freshman year of college and the fact that I graduated high school an entire year ago. My oh my does time fly! In honor of today being my FIRST FRIDAY OF SUMMER, I thought I’d reflect and look back at my freshman year of college. Today I’ll be taking a look at my spring semester goals and my freshman year goals, seeing if I accomplished any of them, and just kind of reflect on the semester as a whole.

In case you are new here, I’m now a sophomore (wow, that’s feels really weird to say) computer information systems major at the University of South Carolina in the hottest city ever, Columbia, SC. I love it here, and I’m so glad I moved away from home!       KEEP READING “A Look Back at Freshman Year”

5 Things I’ve Learned Since Being In College

I’ve officially been in college for almost three months now! It’s hard to believe I’m almost done with my first semester of my freshman year of college. I don’t really feel experienced enough to tell you the do’s and don’ts of college quite yet, but I thought I’d share what I’ve learned so far. This summer I spent so many hours reading about college and what to expect and what to pack. I was so excited! Little did I know how much I would learn in these first few months!

College Goals: Freshman Year

College. No parents, few rules, and a huge responsibility. I’ve been waiting to go to college for years now, craving independence and freedom. I think with any new experience, I always have goals in mind. What am I looking to get out of this experience? Well, my friends, today I have my college goals for you! Some of these may be completely unreasonable, but sometimes you have to dream big, right? KEEP READING “College Goals: Freshman Year”
