Be careful in the first semester
If you don’t be careful then the first semester of college might be the one thing that you regret the rest of your college years. The sudden freedom and change in class structure catches students off guard. No one forces the students to attend the classes; one has to manage on his own. Maintain discipline in life or else you might miss the 8 o’clock lectures. The grades of this semester might affect your performance in the rest of the college years.
Professors are not teachers
The school teachers were certified to teach, hand out notes and keep a check on your performance. Professors on the other hand would take classes more like a discussion and would not give you specific notes. It is your job to jot down important and relevant points.
Always stay ahead of what the professor is discussing in the class. The college lecture proceeds surprisingly fast in terms of the topics covered. If you miss out on something you might lag a lot behind.
Save Time, Save Money
Figure out the most efficient way to study, do other chores and spend your money. Time and money seem to fly during college if not handled properly.
Confront your weakness
Along with trying to excel in college try to pay attention to personal growth. How you develop as a person outside the class matters a lot. Find out your weaknesses and try to work on them. Don’t hesitate to talk about them to your friends, they might help you out. Join organisations that might help in your personal growth.
Watch your health
Sleep, eat healthy and exercise. Do not get carried away by the numerous outings and places serving delicious food. Try and maintain a balanced diet and help yourself lead a healthy lifestyle.
