The First Day of College Essay

College is the first start of a whole new chapter of every person’s life. As I began college and walked through the doors for the first day I took a deep breath and could feel my future approaching. Beginning college doesn’t mean that you just begin school to be in school, it means you’re contemplating your future and beginning a task that would create your life. I felt a sense of worry because I was unaware of college life and what the teacher’s expectations were, if I would make it academically, and how well I would be socially in making new friends. Before I started college I was nervous about how it would be or what it would be like.

I had no idea how the first day would go. My main worry was wondering how the teachers would be and what they would expect from their students. I tried to prepare for it in an orderly manner and face the task that I had to complete to graduate. The teachers were different than I had imagined, they treat you with respect but expect you to take responsibility for yourself and your actions. The teachers are helpful and will assist if you put the work and time in and ask for it, but if you can’t make it a priority to put your work first they won’t provide you with the adequate help.

Most of my teachers have been really helpful in being there and assisting me when I needed it from when I started college to currently. The teachers are completely different from what I had thought; I thought they would be strict and not try to help you in any way. All of my teachers have always been so helpful in assisting me in the help I needed to pass each course. I have always worked well with my teachers in the environment and found each one to be helpful inside and outside the classroom. Adjusting to college can be more difficult than it sounds.

I thought that in my transition from high school to college would be easy and the work would be similar in some way. Through my first semester I concluded that workloads in college become more heavily and every assignment affects your final grade. My GPA seemed to matter the most to me because my goal in college was to maintain my GPA although it did drop from high school to college so I knew I was taking more advanced classes and pushing myself to the highest extent. I learned to use my resources on campus that were given to my ability to help me succeed.

The writing center and math tutoring helped me continue on to further my education. Making friends seemed to be the hardest thing in my mind to overcome.

I learned to use my resources on campus that were given to my ability to help me succeed. The writing center and math tutoring helped me continue on to further my education. Making friends seemed to be the hardest thing in my mind to overcome. I tried to remember that there were a lot of new people there such as myself that were just as nervous as I was.

In each of my classes I knew at least one person and that comforted me and made me feel relieved. I found myself talking to new people in classes, walking from class to class or the library, and by working in study groups I made new friends and it came more natural to talk to people and be social and become more familiar with people I never knew. Balancing school and work can be very difficult but I’ve worked toward my goals that I want to accomplish and it’s made me push harder.

Maintaining my school has become more familiar to me because I’ve made it my first priority and maintained my GPA with the help of my friends and teachers that have supported me. After having a fear of not making friends, I have made more friends in college than I had in high school but it’s made me mature and put priorities first and made me more determined to want to do better and collaborate with my teachers. Most importantly, I’ve learned that you can’t have pride and you have to ask for help, which is why the teachers have always treated me respectfully and helped me is because I want to do well and succeed in life.
