Thank you Skype for sponsoring this post!
It’s been quite a few years since my freshman year. Actually, this was right around the exact time of the semester when I realized I was way in over my head. I knew I was in trouble. My grades were slipping, I was super homesick still, and I just kind of felt lost. Things eventually turned around, with the support of professors and counselors at the school.
I often think, “man, if only I knew then what I know now.” I think I would have had a much different freshman experience if I could go back and time and give myself a few pointers! I teamed up with Skype to come up with a list of the ten things I wish I had known my freshman year. First, I teamed up with Skype for a group video call with Katherine and Dani to bounce around ideas with each other. I think we all agreed there was so much we wish we had known or done differently for a more successful year!
Is there anything you’d add to my list or something I forgot? Don’t forget that you can talk with the other Skype RAs and me here: http://bit.ly/1imXKAa
