High School versus College: A Comparison of What to Expect

The College Community Review Your Goals What goals did you set for yourself? For each goal, brainstorm a few possible steps you would need to take to reach the goal. Campus Resources College campuses have a wide range of supports and

resources for students. The resources and procedures students must follow to access them are very different in college than in high school, and they also vary from college to college. It is the students responsibilityand nobody elses to locate and access these resources.
