Upon completing freshman year of college, there are many ways you can survive through your first year. Of course, it has been said multiple times, freshman year will be a struggle since you, the student, are adjusting to a new environment. So, how can you breeze through your freshman year in a four-year university?
A.) If you are living in the dorms, participate in some of the activities that your RA and other RA’s post on your door.
B.) Study, Study, Study – If you live far away from home, study in a quiet area (ex: dorm room, lobby, library or outside). Studying in college has no comparison to high school studying. In college, it is recommended to study for at least two to three hours a day. You can study for one hour in high school, take the test and pass it with flying colors.
C.) Attend Classes Regularly – Attendance is one of the key factors to passing classes. Although some professors are lenient on roll check, there will be instructors who will check to see if their students are present but for those who choose to be skip, they will be marked absent.
D.) Attend Conferences With Professors – Another important piece of information to succeed and pass the class is meeting with your professor and asking questions on an assignment you are unable to understand.
E.) Organizing School Work – Organizing your school work can help you out in the long run. When you separate your notes into one divider and your homework into another divider, place them into a binder. Name your binder on a course you are taking for the semester.
