On the first official day of college, I can remember my sister telling me where the main building was. After that, she left to find her own class. So with my schedule in hand, I had to discover the way to my English 101 class. Once I found my way up three flights of stairs, I felt the nerves settling in. I’m not the type of person to face new situations bravely. Of course there was no way round this. I knew once I walked into the room and found a seat, I would be fine. Well that is easier said than done. I was so paranoid that I would walk into the wrong room, that I forced myself to check my schedule a half a dozen times before entering. All I could think about was what I did last semester. I was headed to my psychology class in the north building. I had no clue that there was a class ahead of mine on only one of the days.

...iscover at sc4. These things included the new classrooms, students and instructors. Looking back, I have no clue why I was so nervous. College has already became second nature to me. I always thought college was supposed to be some bad scary thing. In reality it is not. It is just filled with a bunch of people who actually want to learn. I now laugh at people that say they wish they were still in high school. College is a much better learning environment. Compared to high school, the people here want to learn and can choose to drop out if they want. It may be annoying with all of the homework I receive on a daily basis. But that’s what it takes to succeed in life. A lot of hard work and setting aside most of my social time to complete it. There is no step by step manual on how to get college. It may be hard but I just try my best and learn from my mistakes.

- The first day of anything is always the hardest part. That is why I knew the first day of college would be no picnic. No amount of notebooks, pens or sticky notes, could prepare me for the new atmosphere I was about to face. I had to get used to a whole new set of classrooms, students and instructors. That was the only thing I dreaded. I knew after the first few days I would get used to everything. I had dual enrolled the year before, so I was slightly familiar with my new surroundings. Even though I would now be a full time college student, I still had my worries.... [tags: Student, University, Homework help service]

- College life isn’t easy, actually it’s a lot harder than I thought it would be. Living on my own, being responsible for my own work and I have all the freedom I could have on a college campus.

- The first class of the day I observed at College Station High School was Ms. Bedell’s freshman resource English class. The class consisted of 6 boys and 2 girls. Only 3 students were of a minority race of Hispanic or African American. Her classroom was set up so that her desk was in the front corner of the room and the students’ desks were all facing forward in sets of 2 around the room. The majority of the classrooms at College Station High School have a wall that is all windows. I came from a high school that had nearly no windows, and I think that creates a dark and negative learning environment.... [tags: High school, College, Education, Classroom]

- “College is nothing but high school with ashtrays.” My friend Ron left me with this original piece of advice before I left for college on August 30th. In the weeks following, this cliché would seem prophetic. It would not, however, be accurate today. It was September 1st, and I was officially a college freshman. All my dreams were to be realized. The halls would be paved with intellectuals, and the walls would be plastered with philosophers. State College was my Ellis Island. It would be a far cry from my high school, whose halls were paved with punks and whose walls were plastered with simpletons.... [tags: Autobiography Essay, Personal Narrative]

It was so many different people. The setting wasn’t something I was used to at all. You know how in high school majority of the people were goofy not really focused on what they should be focused on.
