When one goes to college, he or she will sometimes think of that social life rather than the academic part. But in order to succeed in any University, you must focus on your classes and wisely manage your time. To help me do that, I have set some academic goals for my freshman year. I plan to have at least a 3.0 by the end of the year and hopefully receive all 15 of my credits. This expectation is not hard to achieve as long as I can put up with my classes.
