I knew that in order to ensure that I would be able to take care of my family long term, I had to go back to school and begin the pursuit of my degree. After I have now gone through my first college course (Introduction to University Studies) in over 16 years, it is a decision that I am glad I finally made. Getting a degree will allow me to pursue greater career opportunities that will enable me to provide a more stable and comfortable life for me and my family. The journey of getting a degree will also make me a better rounded person as well. I will not only get the knowledge and information I need for my major, Accounting, but by taking other courses I will also learn new things that I do not already know now.
For instance, if a student has spent all night writing a midterm paper or studying for a difficult test, then he or she might just accidentally fall asleep in class. This type of student may get bonus points for even going to class. Moreover, if the subject is boring and the student already knows the material (i.e. he or she has already studied it or he or she has read the material at home) then the student might have a valid reason for sleeping in class. However, this does not mean that students should be encouraged to work very hard at night and then just take it easy in class the next day.

If you know something that you learned while listening in class that gives you one less thing to study for. You already know the information to it because you were listening. Write down everything the teacher writes down. Take notes as she tells you to. If the teacher doesn’t require you to take notes, still take notes for your advantage.

College 101 is a class at Moraine Valley Community College that is to help many students, like myself, discover their potential in learning and in life. Being a full time student at Moraine, I attend a College 101 class once a week, during my eight week class I have learned value things that I can apply while being in college. My college 101 class helped me understand diversity; that learning is lifelong; and the values of planning ahead and having goals in my classes as well as in life. One thing that many college students learn when they enter an environment is that not everyone around is alike .Colleges and universities are the one place in the world there people from all different ethnic backgrounds come together for many purposes.
