TRANSITION FROM HIGHSCHOOL TO COLLEGE The transition from high school to college can be either difficult or easy. The perception of college along with one’s work habit can determine the rise or fall of a student’s first semester. When I was in my last year of high school, all I did was to prepare for my next adventure. I spent an enormous amount of time researching about what to expect, and how to survive the college lifestyle. I have faced a lot of changes as a student, and personally. After I started college, I realized that high school and college life are very different. With the newly acquired freedom there are many distractions to make homework go by the wayside. A smoother transition required me to take the time to find ways to learn a better study habit, become adjustable in my ways of being taught, and finding other ways to let my work amuse me. Moreover, high school and college students have different education systems. In college, students are authorized to choose their own majors. However, high school students cannot be easily inspired, with required classes. A high school student has to attend and listen to the required subjects, without any choice. In college, a student can choose their subjects or schedule, and can drop the course if they do not like the professor. In terms of schedules, high school students are used to routine in their school schedule. They dismiss at the same time and have same subject schedule every day. College students have different schedules and have responsibility of arranging their own time. In addition, high school only has lunch as a break time, and college can have longer breaks between classes. I realized that transitioning from high school to college is a huge leap in adjusting. It also important because it can make or break my first semester. Work isn’t always “going by the book,” but sometimes it doesn’t take as much time as thought. To work effectively I have to maximize my time and be aware of any changes in the task assigned.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
