Freshman experience in college is an exciting time because of the changes they encounter, and because of the enormous responsibilities for personal and intellectual growth. While in high school you learned how to find, organize and absorb information and these skills will be quite valuable to you in college. Your teachers took the primary responsibility for structuring and assigning the subject matter, and for monitoring your progress as you mastered it. High school teachers must, by law, have skill and training in how learning occurs and how best to teach. By law and by school policy, they are responsible for much of their student’s learning, and tend to keep very close track of their success rates.
