My friends were all talking about college,their dream schools and where they would love to attend school. My friends wanted to attend schools such as Cleveland Institute of Art …show more content…
Professors have showed me how important it is to continue with your college education. They get very excited when you tell them you would like to go farther than Lakeland and transfer to a university or go across the street and attend the Holden University Center to continue your degree.

Luckily, I don 't have to worry about that because I have wonderful professors at Lakeland Community College that will help me along the exciting

When I first heard about the trip, I wasn’t so interested because I thought all colleges were the same, but my friends then told me to give it a try and that I might end up liking one of the schools, which did end up happening. One extremely helpful thing I learned was that always try to visit the campus first, before applying because you might get accepted and eventually hate it. I have also learned to always look at the majors, programs, activities, etc a school has. I believe this trip has helped me determine how I will research the school and help me decide whether or not I will apply there.…

But SFA is also a great choice, and sometimes after being in house with all my siblings the dorms sound perfect to me and I could probably study more better If I didn’t have them yelling down my ear all the time.

Hopefully when it comes time for college I won’t be as uncomfortable surrounded with a whole lot of people.…
