College Tips and Advice

Today is Gwen’s first day of class at Calhoun Community College.  I have some tips and advice that I would love to share with her.  However, I can’t just tell her my advice.  I am a blogger, so it has to go in a post.

  • If you need help with a class, don’t be ashamed to ask.
  • Stay positive, if you keep working at it you will complete your degree.
  • Attendance is important, so try to be there as much as possible.
  • Get involved in campus life.  Find a club or organization to join, attend some of the sporting events, plays, debates, and special lectures that are available at the college.
  • Learn the material.  Study it until you understand it.
  • Don’t be in a hurry and do your best.
  • Don’t procrastinate, have a plan to complete assignments ahead of schedule.
  • Pay attention during class and take notes.  If the teacher says something is important, write it down and underline it.
  • Keep your notes, assignments, and study materials organized.
  • Make some new friends and have fun during your college years.

First Steps Into Adulthood

Gwen took her first steps into adulthood today.

We went to Calhoun Community College to finish up a few things for registration.  Gwen got her student ID, picked up her parking pass, and went to the bookstore to buy supplies for her first class. I watched her walk around the campus and I couldn’t believe she is now officially a college student.

Gwen’s first class starts next week and I am so proud of her.  I have no doubt that Gwen will work hard and do her best in each class.
