    Having knowledge on college vocabulary could help us with our first semester because when we sit in our lectures and the professors use the words, we will better understand what he or she is talking about and we wont be completely lost. It will also help us expand our vocabulary when talking to professors or writing college papers.

    With this information i know that learning these vocabulary words as I start my first semester of college at city tech will help me a lot, it will guide me to what’s important and to what i should know about what’s available at city tech or things they offer, or even words people use at campus or online that I wouldn’t have known if it wasn’t for the website. I know that if i didn’t explore the website as much as i did with the workshop i know it would’ve been difficult for me to be a normal student at city tech. It is nice to know that they have so much things to offer and know there are a lot of support to get from, just from a single website.
