Five Things to Know before Starting College

Excerpt from an article by Reagan Griffin of The Laurel Leader-Call newspaper:

I have found, after completing my first semester at Jones County Junior College, that there are five major things I have learned outside of the classroom, and I would like to take the time to pass my knowledge on to others who have yet to experience the joys of higher education.

1. Teachers DO take attendance. I had the same mindset as many seniors planning on going to college. I thought. . .

. . . , “I cannot wait until I get in a university so I can go to class when I want to.” I was in for a rude awakening when I walked into my first higher education classroom and heard (to my surprise) my instructor calling out the roll. Trust me, this is an everyday occurrence.

2. Go to class. ... This is a must. Even though it is quite tempting to get that extra 20 minutes of sleep, it never fails that you end up. . .
