Top Pitfalls of Freshman Year
- Not taking 9th grade academics seriously/believing freshman year doesn't really count and you can make up for it later - GPA foundation
- Not getting involved in something/no extracurricular activities
- Not taking risk to forge relationships with classmates/waiting for others to approach you
- Not forging relationships with important adults in your life
- Not thinking about the future (more than tomorrow or next week!)
- Getting behind in assignments--homework or makeup work from absences multiply quickly!
- Not asking for help (classmates, Lion Leaders, teachers, counselors, administrators)
- Engaging in risky behavior
- Limiting yourself to one group or clique
