How does one college?
This is the question I asked myself for all of my freshman year. In high school, I never really had to work hard for the grades I wanted. I didn't have to study nor did I care about school at all, I made the grades and that's all that mattered. But, when I got to college it was a complete different story and I honestly had no clue on 'how to college'.
Freshmen, it does get better and you will make it out alive, I promise. By now, I am about to start my second semester of sophomore year and I have finally figured it all out. I have come to realize that sometimes you have to give up the things that are the cause of your bad grades. But when it comes to college, school is the only thing that needs to matter and is the only thing that will get you a degree.
I have also realized that sometimes you do need to ask for help in some classes, I am a very independent person so that was truly hard for me to understand. I don't like to depend on anyone for help and feel that I can learn things on my own. But that isn't the case when it comes to college and the sooner you learn that the better. You must make sacrifices to make it through and these sacrifices will be the way that you conquer, 'how to college'.
