Journal Writing Project: Preparing for college

For many high school seniors they believe that they know what to expect when they go off and start their new life in college. This is not normally the case due to the fact that in high school many things are different, such as the fact that the student has to figure out a way to pay for the classes that he/she is taking. In some cases this will cause the student to understand that although they are in college without their parents telling them to go to class, it is their responsibility to step up and become the adult.

While people are in high school they normally have seven classes in a day unless the school has a block schedule. This is where students only have four classes that last an hour and a half. These classes are back to back where the student has to go from one class to another. Although when you make it to college an advisor help set the schedule of classes throughout the week. Most of the time all of the classes will not be back to back everyday.

While signing up for classes, I myself found the shock that I only have two classes a day, and most days my class doesn’t start until ten or noon. Just the thought of not having to go from class to class and have teachers watch your every move to make sure that all the students are in classes and not skipping. Before this I believed that I was completely ready to go to college and know what to expect but I don’t. I don’t believe that any freshman in college really know what to expect until they get to college. I am grateful to everybody who has helped me throughout high school to prepare me to head off into the world and discover what it is that I enjoy and want to do for the rest of my life. I encourage all seniors to tell the people who have played a big role in your life “thank you” for everything that they have done.
