The first thing to remember is: orientation meet-ups are important. Even if your roomie doesn’t go, you feel tired, or have a bad mood, don’t miss them. Even if they turn out to be boring, you’ll at least learn the basics and feel more confident when problems appear.
Be friendly to your roommate and neighbors. That’s our next advice. You’ll have to live with them for an extended period of time, so don’t antagonize anyone without a good reason. Sometimes our roomies became our best friends. Don’t miss a chance to find a true, loving bestie.
While building relationships with your neighbors, classmates and roommates don’t forget about studying.
Stay organized. First months you’ll have to work under pressure: new professors, difficult home tasks, short terms. You can use a calendar, an app, or write reminders on a whiteboard. Just keep track of things to be sure you don’t miss anything. In addition, avoid distractions. There’re a lot of temptations in college. That’s why you need to look for a perfect study area. You need piece and quite to feel comfortable and concentrated.
Next advice is pretty obvious, but we couldn’t omit it. Don’t skip classes. You can rationalize them the way you want, but this can seriously hurt your academic performance. One more time, avoid temptations. You’ll never regret visiting classes. By the way, don’t forget about professors’ office hours. Get to know them and consult on assignments if you need help. As well as the professors, you need to know your academic advisors even better. They can assist you in picking and scheduling courses. So don’t neglect a good resource.
Next important thing about college life is keeping balance. You can easily get anxious trying to deal with college, dorm life, work, friends, and family. Balance your entertainment and education. There is time for everything, but you need to avoid procrastination and follow your timetable. Remember that everything can happen and if you’re struggling with your studies, there are school provided tutors who can help. Don’t be embarrassed to ask. It’s OK that sometimes you will feel like everything is just a bit too much. Accept it and move on. After all, college life is awesome. Don’t miss the fun part because of daily routine.
