You are here

Welcome to Western, Freshmen!

Welcome to the incoming freshmen class of Missouri Western. It’s a new year, and the world is in the palm of your hands. Though you now have the freedom to do what you want, you must remember the cost of staying here at Western. It has been said time and time again that there are those who come to Western and believe it will be a piece of cake. Some have even gone as far as to say that we are just a four-year junior college that passes students right on through. Well if you take some time and sit down to talk with some students who are in departments, like nursing, business, or any major for that matter, they will tell you it takes work. The thing that you have to understand is that college is about meeting new people and living a new life; however, that’s not the half of what college is all about. If you are a serious student and want to get that degree, then you have to work for it -- harder than you worked in high school. The fact is, you’re at a four-year institution just like the University of Missouri or Northwest Missouri State University. It’s not as easy as you may think, and many have fallen thinking it will be. Here’s a little piece of advice that has been passed down from one student to the next for all those students starting their first week of classes in college: 1. The moment you get a homework assignment you get started right away. It doesn’t matter if it’s a reading assignment, homework, or online work, just do it! The problem that almost all students make is putting their homework off, and many have seen their fellow classmates leave right out of Western's doors for not keeping up on the work. 2. When you are given the opportunity to have a study group with three or four of your classmates, take the offer, because it helps. When you have an extra few hours to read a chapter or two to get ahead, take advantage of it so it won’t pile up later on. If you follow these simple steps, you should do well on your exams and succeed in your college experience. There are a lot of people that won’t make it their freshmen year. You are probably thinking that the guy writing this piece is just making it up, but in fact you will witness your friends and classmates disappear like a magic trick. College isn’t for everyone, but those who want it bad enough will work for it. So welcome to Western and the next chapter in your life.
