If you’re familiar with this, and you want to make your stay in college not just bearable, but pleasant and fun, here are some tips for you.
Be sure to have time for studies and preparations for the exams, for friends, and for your personal life. If you have a job, coordinate the schedule with your employer. Do all the tasks on time so that you don’t have to catch up anything because it will be much more difficult to stay focused if you fall behind too much. Many colleges have a distance education program, as well as online lectures and classes in case you miss something. Observe organization and order in everything.
Don’t even try to come up with silly excuses, just get up and go to class. Even if you really don’t want to, put yourself together and take the first step towards changing your life! It’s crucial to attend classes, as you’ll not only have good attendance record but also meet other students and be aware of what’s going on. Try to listen attentively to the lectures and memorize what the teacher says. Take notes. This will save you a lot of time because you won’t have to learn anything at home if you understand the material and remember at least half of it.
Everyone learns the information in different ways. Someone feels great in noisy companies, but someone can concentrate only in complete silence. If you need to perform some task, but you can’t stand the noise, go to the library and complete the task there. You’ll do it much faster without being distracted. Find the best conditions for yourself – this will help you to stabilize your studies and find time to hang out with your friends.
Remember, once you get a job after college, you’ll have to come there by nine and work until 5-6 pm. In college, you’re required to do the same: go to class and spend the rest of the time as you see fit. It’s not that hard, right? Act like an adult and count on your strength. Imagine that your college education is a kind of preparation for a permanent job.
Schedule yourself a few things you need done do and try to fulfill each task every day. For example, if you need to write a coursework for a week or two, don’t hesitate. Otherwise, you’ll have to write it two days before the deadline, which certainly won’t do anything good for you. Do everything gradually, spending a couple of hours a day on your coursework, and it won’t seem like a difficult task for you.
A lot of students don’t know how to plan their schedule, wasting precious time pranking roommates, creating new cryptocurrencies, looking for Russian brides for marriage, hunting aliens. In other words, doing anything but studying. And there are always parties, so the temptation to visit them is always great. But you should deal with the main tasks first, and only then you can relax.
Most students start the semester well, but their efforts go down the drain by the end of it. Sure, constant lack of sleep and a pile of tasks, make you want to give up and rest, but be patient for a little longer! Always check your curriculum and stay abreast of all assignments and exams. Try to stay on top and go ahead.
Stay away from junk food, get enough sleep, and stay physically active. If you feel great, you’re doomed to success!
The right attitude is all you need to make life in college an exciting adventure, not a nightmare.
