Response to 18 Questions Teenagers Have About College:
1. Once you get to college, you’ll meet with advisors to help you choose classes. It’s easy enough for your first 2 years because of classes that are required for all degree plans, but you get some freedom once you actually declare your major and begin taking upper level courses. 2. Social media… It’s one of its few saving graces. 3. I don’t know if it is. I went to a state school and I’ve been plenty successful while my friends who attended private schools have not done anything with your degree. If you know what you want to do, do your research, and find a school with a good program for your degree. 4. It can be at first, especially because you’re taking classes you don’t necessarily care about—they’re all required. When you begin to take classes for your degree, your priorities begin to shift. 5. Definitely not 6. Depends on your degree of course. It’s really competitive, so use your time in college to get experience. 7. If you’re solely concerned with making money, then get a degree in something you’ll find a lot of jobs in. If you want to enjoy your future career, major in something you enjoy, and be tenacious. You may have to work some mediocre jobs, but you’ll eventually find something for you. 8. I don’t have any experience with this question. 9. Yes! Lib Arts degrees are marketable because they tell your employers you’re a strong writer and critical thinker. 10. I would say yes. Your freshman and sophomore year you’ll be taking basics, so when it comes time to take classes for your major, you’ll know the professors in the program as well as learning what the department expects from the students. 11. As a fellow English major, yes it can be. What do you want to do with it? As I mentioned before, Lib Arts are marketable, so don’t think you’ll be unemployable, but you may not be doing what you initially wanted right away. 13. You need some time of post-secondary education. The job market is way too competitive now to just skip it. 14. If you’re at a four year college, then live in the dorms. Regardless of where you go though, get involved with student organizations and talk to the people in your classes. It’s much easier to make friends in college than it may seem. 15. Go with someone you don’t know. If you end up disliking them, then it’s no loss to you, but if you room with a friend (especially in a dorm where there’s no sense of privacy) you could end up growing apart from them because you have just spent waaaaay too much time with them over the past 9 months. 16. Errrrrm, no idea… Speak to your college advisor or visit the career advisors that colleges offer to get guidance and advice. 17. This is up to you entirely. I would personally say no because I feel like you should pursue something you’re interested in. 18. Because the U.S. is the worst
