Some Truths About College
  • Unlike high school, nobody will be monitoring
    your studying and preparation
  • Teachers and parents wont be looking over your
    shoulder and reminding you about your homework
  • There is much less structure
  • There is much more freedom, but also more
    temptation
  • You must be self-disciplined
  • Different professors are VERY different and have
    different expectations. An important skill of
    the college student is to figure out what your
    professor is expecting from you.
