Suddenly when you get to your college campus things such as…dorm room, roommate, eating, sleeping, studying, & social life can seriously impact your survival. So here are some of the things that you can do to ensure that you college experience is truly second to none.
Tips for Money Management
Stick to a budget: Creating a budget and following it is very essential when you are a poor college student. If you have a job while in college, you will want to guage how much of your income needs to go to monthly essentials. When you receive money from home, treat it as if you had earned it. With all the studying the last thing you need is to stress about money. A monthly budges can certainly calm that stress if followed through.
Try Not To Splurge: Part of setting a budget is sticking to it. It is tempting to want to get the latest and greatest technology or to travel out for a night on the town. But you will find that these splurges leave you short at the end of the month for your essentials.
Take notes in class: Each day after class review the notes that you’ve taken to ensure that you lock the new material in you brain.
Study groups: Find classmates that you trust and form a study group to help you with the tough class material.
Set a study schedule: Stay true to your study schedule and try not to get tempted by the college nightlife (not that there is anything wrong with that once in a while).
Getting Ready For Exams
Get your sleep: It is extremely important that the night before an exam you should get at least 8 hours of sleep. A well rested mind is your best chance at succeeding.
Review: Try to review key concepts before you go to bed so the next day they are fresh in your mind.
Take your time: Make sure you don’t rush through the exam, take all the time that is needed. If there is an allotted time frame just make sure you use it wisely. If you have extra time, use it to review your answers.
