Since it is April, it’s time for high school seniors to be making their final choices about where they want to go to college. As a college senior who has less than a month of my college left before I graduate, I like to think of myself as somewhat of an expert on college in general. So, I will take this opportunity to pass along some of my knowledge….about preparing for college, going to college, and everything in between!
Check out Butler’s social media pages…
Butler does a really great job using social media, so use it! Check out the Class of 2016 Facebook page, the Admissions twitter account – @gobutleru, and the University’s twitter account – @butleru. Using social media is a great way to connect with people already at Butler, your future classmates, and even different departments or areas of campus.
Learn to study before your sophomore year…
Usually, freshman come to college without ever really learning how to study in high school. It’s all fine and dandy until your sophomore year – when classes really start to pick up (a lot of freshmen classes are pretty similar to classes from high school). So take my advice – and learn to study….soon!
Love every moment…
As a senior…I am getting pretty sad that I won’t be a college student anymore…really soon. I would like to think that I have enjoyed every moment of my 4 years, but as I think back, I just remember hoping that things would be over quickly, like tests, projects, and anything else that took more time than I really wanted to give. I understand how I was feeling at the time, but it still makes me sad to think that I got tired of stuff a lot during my 4 years…and now I just wish that I could go back a few years and do it all over again. So – enjoy everything. The all nighters, the long group meetings, the nights where you have to write a paper when everyone else is celebrating getting into the Elite 8 (yes… I had to do that), and of course, all of the times with your friends.
Lastly – go to Butler.
Seriously, I would not change anything about the last 4 years of my college career, which is mostly thanks to this amazing school that I go to. It’s an absolutely beautiful place with people that truly care about others…what more could you ask for??
