Senior year goes by faster than the other years. The material seems easier but that is only because the knowledge and ability has grown throughout the years. The work in your courses become second nature. Confidence is at an all-time high as well because you understand every lecture, homework and exam. At the end of high school, the end of colleges raises a lot of questions pertaining to the future. What's next in life? Where will I work? Will I succeed?

When sophomore year starts the training wheels come off. Expectations and responsibilities are high and the pressure is on. Sophomore year classes no longer give you the benefit of the doubt, or let you “settle in.” Ability has increased, therefore the responsibilities have increased as well. As a sophomore you hit the ground running and you use the knowledge you gained freshman year and build on it.

Major transitions in life always bring us excitement and anxiousness.The summer after high school graduation I was filled with these two emotions as I awaited my freshman year of college. As a student, I left an environment where I was a big fish in a small pond only to migrate to a much bigger pond where I would be a little fish. The unknown is a scary thought. Will i succeed? Will i fit in? However, the unknown is also exhilarating as you cannot wait to begin the next chapter of your life.  When freshmen year finally begins, the nerves finally go away but the excitement remains.
