10 Common Mistakes Made By Freshmen

1.Letting it be known what Greek organization you want to join. DISCRETION is a MAJOR KEY!

2.Scheduling eight o’clock morning classes.

3.Thinking that “freshman 15” won’t catch up to you. Make healthier decisions.

4. Not going to class. You’ll find out how important this is soon enough when you’re on academic probation, second semester or back at home with your parents.

5. PROCRASTINATING! Do your work before it’s due. Trust me, the syllabus is your friend. Even if an assignment is due two months from now you’ll find yourself waiting a month and 29 days later.

6. Not getting advised. You don’t want to be that sixth-year senior because you thought you could do it all alone. Get advised by your counselor or department head.

7. Staying in your room. Get out and experience life as a college student. Join organizations and make friends.


8. Partying too much! Trust me parties will happen every weekend, but you DO NOT have to attend them all. Make time to rest and study. Remember the reason you’re there.

9. Buying books from the bookstore. There is a plethora of sites you can get way cheaper books on. Do not waste your money on that expensive book that bookstores will buy back for only one dollar.

10. Making enemies with your roommate. Even if you two are complete opposites be respectful and come up with a couple of rules that both parties agree upon. Let him/her know what is off limits and if you’re concerned about your property lock it up. Don’t bring too many valuables to college.
