9 Tips Every College Student Should Know

Whether you’re a know-it -all or a nimrod, here are a few tips every college student should know.

1.    Free is your best friend next to sale.

The amount of freebies you find in college is unparalleled. Unless you are a trust-fund baby, money will be tight, so ENJOY IT.  You will never be in a position where you are offered so many things for free. In short, DON’T GET USE TO IT.

2.   Chuck the TV:

Television is great but it holds you back. While you could be mingling with the girls on the second floor or studying for your next class you are instead mindlessly half enjoying another rerun of family guy. There will be plenty of time to watch all of your favorite shows when they are on HULU plus.

3.    Remember High School … NOBODY CARES!

If you were prom queen, varsity football captain or had a 5.0 G.P.A, it really doesn’t matter. You aren’t any better than anyone else now. And if you were nobody in high school, you have a GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE A NEW NAME FOR YOURSELF.

4.   Participate In Class:

You have a voice, USE IT! If you have a question, ASK IT! You can’t complain about the direction of your class if you don’t speak up. However everything is good in moderation. Make sure you are neither the wallflower nor the annoying guy who raises his hand to feel important.

5.    Consider a 2-year college before a 4-year university:

This portion of your life is all about discovering yourself. 4-year universities may market themselves like they own the experience but the truth is they don’t. You can learn a great deal about yourself and MEET AMAZING PEOPLE WITHOUT MAJORING IN DEBT.

6.    You Can Know Everything and Still Fail.

A good rule of thumb is to always study before an exam. Despite what your parents may have told you, you aren’t Einstein. There will be a time where you simply didn’t prepare enough. GETTING ONE C- IS NOT GOING TO KILL YOU. It happens to the best of us. As long as you don’t make it a habit you will survive.

7.    It Is OK to Learn Outside Of Class:

Remember how I said always study. Well you should also remember that STUDYING ISN’T EVERYTHING. Reading a textbook isn’t going to make you a well-rounded person. And you can’t expect to get a job outside of school without social skills so HAVE FUN AND MAKE FRIENDS.

8.    It’s About Who You Know. Make a Network!

I can’t reinforce this enough. NETWORK, NETWORK, NETWORK. You know the saying ‘money talks’, well ‘talking makes you money’. This means introduce yourself at every occasion. Talk with your professors, resident advisor, classmates, even the maintenance people. Every friend made is a new opportunity to share who you are and where you want to go. Who knows, maybe your new friends uncle is an expert in the field you want to go into. THERE IS NOTHING BETTER THAN A RECOMMENDATION FROM AN INSIDER.

9. College Is A Business:

Higher Ed is the only business that makes money whether you enjoying their service or not. If you choose to make absolutely no use of your time on campus, and never use any of the services provided you still have to pay tuition. This means MILK YOUR DOLLAR FOR EVERYTHING IT’S WORTH. You can do this by visiting your Advisor, going to free events, getting student tickets to shows, using the gym, and not skipping classes. If you wouldn’t order food and throw it out you should pay for school and not go.
