Freshman Year Goals

Wednesday, August 5, 2015

I leave for college on the 16th of this month and I am beyond psyched! Despite this year being my first actual year in college, I won't be considered a freshman academically due to the fact that I received a large amount of accelerated credits in high school that transferred into college credit. The amount of credits I have deem me a sophomore for classification purposes, but I am still what is considered an FTIC, otherwise known as a First-Time In College student. The way I look at it, this is technically my first year in college so for post purposes, I will still refer to this list as my freshman year goals. Here are the ten goals that I hope will achieve by the end of this first year in college...


1. Rush and be recruited to a sorority.

2. Be officially accepted into the Business program.

3. Make the Dean's List both semesters.

4. Find a part-time job on-campus or close by.

5. Become a Student Ambassador for a club/organization.

6. Follow a set workout schedule.

7. Be accepted as an Orientation Leader or Rho Gamma for the summer of 2016.

8. Make a new close/best friend (or two, maybe three!).

9. Get at least one scholarship ("at least" because more is obviously always better).

10. Join and write articles for my university's Her Campus chapter.

What are your goals for this school year? Remember that if you work hard, you can achieve anything!
