1. Looking at my first Success Assessment I can see I wasn't being honest or realistic. At the beginning of the semester I was so optimistic, like every other student that starts college,but I honestly thought that I had everything under control. I was a great high school student and that brought the expectation that I would be a great college student, but it doesn't work that way. College is different than high school in so many ways, In high school I could prioritize social events and receive good grades but doing that in college is risky. In My first success Assessment I scored 481 in my recent one I scored 410. I noticed that my score lowered by seventy one points, and it isn't from lack of trying to score higher but because I realized that through my first semester my test taking skills aren't as great as I first believed. 1. I noticed through the semester that my test taking skills aren't as great as assumed, in my classes when test came around I panicked I forgot important key points from the textbook, and that reading the material twice won't help, the test are different in college they honestly do have more complex questions. But I learned from this mistake, I won't underestimate test, I will study harder and prepare for the unexpected and not be as optimistic as I was at the beginning of the semester. Where there is failure there is also success. Although, I didn't do as well as would like in test taking,I great in my personality and major. I grow up and learned new things about myself this semester. I know it sound like a cliche but leaving high school behind and being babied as I was in high school, I learned that I was so codependent on everyone that I couldn't do things for myself. I struggled in filling out simple forms because my councilers filled out everything for me, I relied on people for four years and having to fly solo for the first time made me see that I am my own person and that I can rely on others but we all have to carry our bagge and do things ourselves if we want to succeed. Having to learn to be dependent made work harder for my goal and appreciate those that have helped me get this far, and really want to continue my education and reach my goal to be a nurse. I didn't do well in test taking but I improved in my personality and major and to me that is a true surprise and a huge deal because I have struggled with my identity but having only myself to depend on really opened my eyes to the type of person I am, I learned who I am but I still have things to work on and improve but I know that with my determination I can move forward and improve because all i have to keep moving forward and put one foot forward. 2. The first time I heard of the FYE program was actually at my orientation. Orientation was so overwhelming, there was much information to take in that my anxiety and stress increased but near the end of the orientation the instructor mentioned (FYE) The First Year Experience Personal Development Class. The instructor explained how FYE was for first year student and was meant to help first year

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
