Transitioning from High School to College
Transitioning from high school to college is an exciting and daunting experience. Fortunately, you have already learned many of the academic and social skills you will use to succeed in college, but there are a few fundamental differences.
Getting Acclimated to College Life
College is a time of excitement, exploration, and freedom for many students. It’s a chance to discover new things that you are passionate about in a safe environment. However, not everyone is able to dive head-first into the whirlwind of university life.
Living with a Roommate
You probably started to think about what it would be like to have a roommate well before you had an assignment. For many of you, this will be the first time that you will share a room with another person, a person you may not know.
Finding Academic Help
No matter what your major is, while you’re at UNCG you can be sure that you will be doing a lot of writing and public speaking, and probably some media production as well.
