Tips to Succeed
- Don't be afraid to speak up in class.
- Don't push yourself when deciding on a major; start off as University Studies and explore all your options.
- Get to know your professors; sometimes it can make the difference between a B and an A. Also, they can help you find internships and write recommendations.
- Go to class; sometimes attendance counts as half your grade.
- Learn how to navigate the library.
- Make friends in class; they're future study partners and can tell you what you miss if you take a day off.
- Open your book at least a few days before your first test. This isn't high-school; it's going to take some time and effort to learn the material. Though you'll probably have to pull an all-nighter every now and then, start early, and avoid them whenever possible.
- Sit near the front (especially when you're one student out of 300 in a class).
- Try not to get too caught up in the party scene. It's OK to get out and have some fun, just don't let it get in the way of your school work.
