Having a solid college career plan can make for an easier transition from high school academics to learning on the college level. It is not expected that a given incoming freshman will have every aspect of college already planned out before entering, but a basic foundation is necessary for success. While guidance counselors, teachers, and parents may have huge roles in helping an incoming college freshman find a major that suits them the way the other sees best, it is time for these soon-to-be college students to stand up and find their lace in the world. This all starts in planning for the right major at the right school. While it may seem like college is the end of a long road, these next few months and decisions an incoming student makes about universities and major specific topics are the most important months of their young life.

The four articles found within the "Planning Your College Career" category are each beneficial to incoming freshman students in different ways. For instance, the article relating to study strategies helps students recognize different strategies used by students and select a specific technique that meets his/her individual needs. The "Balancing School and Sports" article, on the other hand, provides motivation to freshman students by suggesting if student athletes are able to maintain a high GPA, then full-time students can also. Furthermore, effective communication with professors is always an obstacle new college students must overcome. Unlike talking to teachers in high school, communication with college professors can be much more difficult due to class size and complex schedules. Which is why the article relating to this issue is absolutely necessary. In many cases, understanding how students in similar situations were able to plan his/her college career can be overwhelming useful.
