Things To Probably Know Before College

I went to a pretty awesome high school, but there were somethings that I wished they taught me; none of them are academic.

(1) What loans are and the difference between federal and private loans.

The first time I had to deal with loans was when I came to college. And to be completely honest, I did no prior research before signing off on them. The fact is, most of us needs loans to get through college; this college-life is simply not cheap. I wish I knew more about the national average of post-college debt and other important facts surrounding loans.

(2) What are bills and how to budget for them.

Becoming 18 was perhaps the weirdest moment of my life. I had gone from asking to use the restroom (in high school) to applying for a job, getting a state I.D., accepting loans, getting a passport, etc. None of high school prepared me for that. When I got to college, I had to support myself financially which meant I had to learn how to pay bills and budget. Again, high school did not prepare me for that transition.

Academics are important but the hardest part about college isn’t in the classroom, it’s the things schools don’t teach you beforehand.
