Jenn:

“I had a chemistry class my first quarter here…and I was in that class with a lot of people who knew the material. They were like, ‘Wow! This was easy. Why don’t you know this?” And I felt like I was dumb. And I knew I wasn’t. I worked so hard for a C in college when in high school I was in AP Chemistry and I got straight A’s…So it’s like I’m trying to catch up and it’s hard. I wish someone would have pushed me more….”

JB:

“ Writing in college has been one of the most difficult things I have ever experienced. I would definitely change my curriculum back in high school to have the chance to do more writing and writing about topics that are more academic….I spent three years in ESL where we didn’t do as much writing…writing little essays, not a big research paper. Last semester I had to write three research papers. One was 20 pages, one was 15 pages, and one was 12 pages. They were all due back to back.”

terra
Terra:

“A lot of kids in high school, when they don’t understand something, they go straight to their teacher and ask for help….But if you automatically go to the teacher and they give you the answer, when you hit college, you’re going to want the answer and go to your professor, and they’re just going to look at you and tell you to go find the answer.”

robert
Robert:

“ Time management is probably the hardest to get used to. You’re used to someone waking you. You are used to being reminded and constantly told about different stuff that now you have to do on your own. I think that’s the hardest part. Taking over from someone already having that structure for you and now you have to be functional for your own self.”
