I honestly chose the University of Memphis because it was far from home! It gave me a chance to be independent from my family, and has more than exceeded my expectations. I have become involved in projects and organizations that interest me, found a group of friends who will be lifelong, and explored a city that has a lot to offer.

Focus on Academics

Study, Study, Study! This cannot be stated frequently enough. As a high school student you are aware of the importance of studying. Acing the big test is determined by how successful you are at studying. College is no different. To be successful in college, you must be prepared and that preparation began when you started school so many years ago. However, it is most important now since college admission is determined by your success in high school.

To achieve greater success in life, completing a college education has become one of the most important achievements a student can attain. Therefore, it is important that you focus your efforts on your high school academics and study, study, study. It is also recommended that you research college admission requirements to insure that you're meeting the requirements. You are encouraged to view the University of Memphis high school curriculum requirements online.

Upon admission to the University, you can be better prepared if you've researched and chosen a major, and structured your high school curriculum to prepare you for that chosen major. We invite you to review the academic majors offered at the University of Memphis.
