Comment on one or more aspects of the program (classroom activities, guest speakers, professors, student ambassadors / presentations, university environment, campus tours, etc.) that you found particularly helpful in preparing you for your first semester at UHD:

  1. Other comments about the FSSP experience

Managing my time will be extremely helpful to comprehend, understand, and be able to do well in college.

I have learned that I’m going to apply myself very hard in order to achieve the grades I want.

The gap between high school & college is pretty big, but with all these guest speakers, professors and past students giving advice it surely helps to know some facts and past experiences.

You have to push yourself to stay dedicated and complete the work.

I learned that you’re not forced to go to class so now that we’re freshman we have to be responsible enough to go to class or that money has gone down the drain.

Ask questions, setup meetings with professors, make friends, do different activities.
