Know what you want, but listen to your parents because even though you would rather ignore them they can help you. At the end of the day it’s your grades, your future and your life. Whatever you decide to do, make sure you put your best foot forward because you have to live with what you did and that effects what you will do. If you have “What if’s” and “I should have…” your senior year in high school, imagine that regretful feeling your senior year in college or when you want to go to that dream grad school for your dream career, but you can’t because you didn’t do your best.
I’m from Detroit, but I went to school in Farmington Hills, which is about 15-20 minutes from Detroit. My high school was a private all girls school! It wasn’t as horrible as it seems, we did have a brother’s school but it was in Detroit. The best thing about my school was it was so diverse and you interacted with so many different nationalities. It gives you an interesting outlook on life and helped me decide what type of person I am becoming.
I chose Western because when I came to visit and take a tour I really liked the atmosphere - everything from the students to the staff. I was not 100% sold on coming to Western, but I’m really happy I came. I’ve met a lot of great people and had a lot of interesting experiences. My major is psychology and I love to listen and talk to people and help them with everything, no matter how often they have talked about it.
College life is a lot of fun but also a lot of responsibility. Most people
are always saying I cannot wait to go to college and not have my parents
around. I was once of those people. I love my freedom, but you need to
know how to
manage your time. Always make time for fun and friends, but know you
are a student and in order to have all the fun and the real college experience,
need to actually be in college. I personally don’t prefer the residence
halls, but to each their own. I have made some great friends and lots of
wonderful experiences living in residence halls. It is really convenient
to get to class
and have meals made for you.
