    I suggest taking a variety of different classes. Now is the time for you to explore, so take advantage of it. If you move on to a four-year university after Harper, there will be less flexibility to take fun classes, so get your fill of them now! But make sure you don't slack off too much in the beginning, because then you will have to take all of your hard classes at one time-like I did.

    If your planning to go to college I recommend attending Harper College First, get your associate's degree and then transfer to a 4 year college, you will save money, lots of money.

    Do not think it will be a breeze because it is a community college. Harper really challenges you, I wish I kept track of the amount of caffeine I have been running on! Try your hardest because these 'gen-eds' will be what helps boast your GPA when you get into classes that are a lot harder, you will regret those Bs and Cs.

    GET INVOLVED. Yeah easier said than done right? wrong. At Harper, there are many opportunities to meet others who are just like you and enjoy the same things that you do. Also, it allows you to boost up your networking, and start making meaningful connections for your future career. Lastly, it's a great way to make friends! GO TO CLASS. You'll be more prone to success when you go to every class. You'll find that the students who miss that aspect end up doing poor in class. BE YOURSELF. Now is the time to show forth who you are and what your about. Of course you're still learning and growing and realizing things about yourself, but at the time being, just be yourself.
