Top Pitfalls of Freshman Year 

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