2.How to read and comprehend academic writing

“The most important skill freshmen need in preparation for college is the ability to read and comprehend academic writing. Almost all other skills can be taught and/or be part of the college curriculum. However, very few if any faculty have any available useful recourse when a student doesn’t understand the points being made in a textbook or in other college-level writings.” – Xenia Coulter

3. Knowledge of the campus

“The most important things that incoming freshman need to know are the school rules. In addition it’s beneficial to them to have mentors that will be guides to help them get to know the school and the important places such as the location of the counselor, nurse, main office, the media center, [the gym] and the tutorial centers when available.” – Carlos Burger
