Whitney, Gilbert asked Jennifer Elisseeff, Johns Hopkins University AddedSaturday, June 15, 2013 at 5:17 PM Do I need experience when I start college? Hello! I am an incoming freshman for college and I am a little nervous that I am behind to become an engineer! academically I am well prepared! Yet, i have never been in a science fair, engineering club, or engineering class. I am nervous my peers have a head start and I will be overlooked! Any advice?

The truth is you will be in a new environment learning new material it takes a while to adjust. With a lot of hardwork and perseverance you will do just fine. Just keep telling yourself I am capable and I can do it! Congratulations on your new adventure enjoy it!
