Create a list of items that you are going to need to bring along to college. Preparing everything you need before going to college so you do not have to ask your parents for help all the time. This is beneficial if you are traveling a long distance to your college.

 

Do not be unrealistic with your goals when you schedule your classes and work. Avoid taking classes too early in the morning if you are unable to follow a strict schedule. Know your natural body clock and adapt your schedule to flow with that as much as possible.

 

When choosing your major, think about the kind of job you want, but think about the person you are. If you are someone who doesn't want to get up before noon, for example, you might not want to choose a major where the job possibilities require you to work early in the morning.

 

Saying no to things that make you uncomfortable is just as important in college as it was when you lived with your parents. Many students experiment with alcohol or sex during their college years, but if you don't want to do these things, don't let anyone pressure you into them. Your college experience should be about having fun, exploring who you are and preparing for your future via your classes--not about doing things you don't truly want to do.

 

During college, become involved in lots of activities. You'll have a better looking portfolio when other see you have interest in multiple things. The key is to take on only what you can handle without sacrificing your academic performance.

 

Eat breakfast when you have a test. Something small like fruit or yogurt can suffice. Your stomach can be distracting when testing. Low energy and a noisy stomach can affect your testing abilities, so make sure you eat to stay energized and focused.

 

Find a bank that offers free savings and checking accounts. Look around and go with an establishment that works often with students and doesn't charge you extra for a bunch of little things. Ask questions and find out if you can bank online so that you can manage your money when it is convenient for you.

 

Make the effort to get to know each of your instructors. Use office hours to visit each instructor at least once during the term. If the instructor is teaching a class in your major or intended major, spend more time in office hours. When you need a letter of recommendation, it will be easier if your instructors know you.

 

Feel better? Everyone deserves to have the education they desire. You can have it too. Use these suggestions to help yourself. You are not alone. Now that you understand the basics, you can use them. Then, expand on them and increase your dreams. You are worth every minute of effort it takes.
