If you’re about to be a first-time student in the great city of Title Town, it won’t be long before you’re walking across campus, headed to your first college class. Whether you feel thrilled, a little nervous, or somewhere in between, we are here to fill you in on a few of The Crimson White’s back-to-school tips to make your first semester a true winner.
Start Organized with a Planner
When you are loading your brain with new school material, it only has so much room left to remind you about events coming up, due dates, and test days. The best way to stay on schedule and organized as a new college student is using the old-fashioned method of writing it down in a planner or agenda. Use a different colored pen for each kind of reminder, that way you can stay happy, put-together, and stress-free.
Start Your Sleep Schedule
During summer break, you are probably used to going to bed whenever and waking up whenever you please. It won’t be long before those 8:00 a.m. classes hit, and you can’t be staying up until 2:00 a.m. watching Netflix. It is recommended to get a minimum of eight hours of sleep each night. Start going to bed earlier and waking up around 7:00 or 7:30 a.m. With this strategy, you can ease yourself back into a balanced sleep schedule. That way, your are ready to conquer your studies.
Carry over your high school interests. If you were in a book club, a social sorority, or academic honors at your hometown high school, why not continue those interests? The best way to not get homesick is by surrounding yourself by good friends who remind you of home.
