21 – 30 of 50 Tips for Students
21) Use direct deposit and automatic withdrawal for paychecks/loanchecks/ check checks. Less chance of you losing it.
22) Use virus protection and firewalls on your laptop.
23) The student bookstore (online and in real life) can have great student discounts on hardware/software.
24) Reconsider bringing a car to campus your first semester. It can be a pain to park.
25) Pack the clothes you need for college, and then take half of that amount.
26) The more underwear you have, the less you have to do laundry.
27) If you are doing laundry on campus or at a laundromat, stay with your clothes. Otherwise they may walk off while you are gone.
28) I can’t emphasize this enough: INTRODUCE YOURSELF TO YOUR PROFESSORS AND GO TO THEIR OFFICE HOURS. This is so important, I’ll tell it to you again: INTRODUCE YOURSELF TO YOUR PROFESSORS AND GO TO THEIR OFFICE HOURS. We’re nice people. Seriously. And we really like it when someone is interested in our classes.
29) Use the college’s career resource center – not just when you are going to graduate, but when you are figuring out what you want to do with your life. It’s a free service. Use the free services.
We need your feedback so we may continue to fulfill our mission statement and help students, the world over.
