Tips 41-50 for College Students

41) Just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should.

42) Use flashcards to quiz yourself when studying. And get someone else to quiz you with them. If you always quiz yourself with your own flashcards, you may skip over some that you don’t know the answer to.

43) You may not know what you want to do for a major. It’s okay. There are people much older than you that still aren’t sure what they want to do with their lives. That’s okay. See your academic adviser for help. Pay attention to which classes you really look forward to – that can be a clue as to what you might want to major in.

44) If you have a dining card/pass – do not treat all your friends to lunch and dinner. That is real money. Real money that you will be asking your parents for when it runs out.

45) Study groups can be helpful – but keep it to between 3 and 5 members (including you). More than that, and it turns into a social event.

46) If you have ADHD or a learning disability, apply for accommodations as soon as possible – even right after you find out you’ve been accepted to school.

47) Sleep. Get it. Get enough. You may be laughing at this, being a college student and all…but you need to get enough sleep.

48) Wash your hands. Often. Living in the dorms is a communal living experience. Germs love communal living.

49) Keep in touch with your friends from back home, but be open to meeting people of all different cultures and interests.

50) Enjoy your college experience – it’s one most rewarding experiences of your life, academically and socially.
