Benefits of Going to College Now

By: Meagan Flores

When I was offered the opportunity to enroll in a program that could help prepare me for college, I couldn't pass it up. The thought of college alone is scary, but going in with no idea of what to expect would be worse. College Now gives high school students a real college experience which gives a better understanding of what college will really be like. Graduating from high school is a big step in life. It is the step before college and it can be scary. When I think of going to college, I get excited and scared at the same time. I can't wait to meet new people and further my education. The thought of earning a degree and finding a career is exciting. Although college may seem exciting, it is a new world with a more difficult curriculum, much different from one of high school.

College Now has given myself and many other students a chance to experience this difficult curriculum. It motivates students to go the distance and pursue higher education. This program has given me self-confidence, time management skills, a better understanding of how to choose a major and skills that will help me through college, especially the first year. I hope to learn more with College Now as I continue with the program. I would like to learn more about how to handle college work and what it will be like. I feel that I have learned a lot so far. I feel better about myself, my capabilities and I have a better idea of what college will be like. Going to college is a huge step in life. It can be scary and hard to adjust to. Taking College Now has given me the confidence I need to get through the difficult times, especially those of freshman year and I feel more confident about taking the big step into college.
