Welcome MC Class of 2014!

Posted August 10, 2010 6:34PM

We’ve all been in your shoes before. After the bittersweet feelings of finishing high school, you’re probably feeling nervous, excited, sad, and very unsure of what the future holds. But don’t worry and stress yourself out too much as you have an amazing four years ahead of you. As a college freshman, you are entering an entire new world with new experiences and responsibilities. There are going to be a few things that you must learn to get adjusted and there are going to be many new experiences that come your way.

In order to be sure that you get the most out of your freshman year, make sure you start off on a good note. Meeting people on your floor is a great way to begin making friends. Your Resident Assistant will be hosting events within your building early in the year so you can meet your fellow residents. Another way to meet new classes. Many of the classes that you will be registered for in the fall will contain mostly freshman. Making friends with fellow classmates will benefit you when it comes time to study for a test or work on a project. Manhattan College will host an activities fair within the first two weeks of school and it is important that you attend this. Many of the groups that will be at the fair are looking for fresh faces and would love to have new freshman members. The representatives from these groups will be able to answer any questions you have and would be excited to speak to you about what being a member of the club or group entails.

So no matter if you are nervous and hesitant about starting college or counting down the days, just know that college is what you make of it, and your time at Manhattan will be something you will always remember. We would also like to share some of our own freshman experiences with you.
