i am just finishing my first yer back to college, and I will finishing strong. I was out of school for three years due to some crazy life events. However, last year I decided it was time to go back. I enrolled for the fall semester as a Computer Science major(I was previously in school for Materials Science and Engineering) and I have been going strong every since. There were a few hiccups in the beginning, but now I feel like real student, again. If you are considering going back to school, here are some tips to get you started and keep you going.
