College Life Tips

Johanna learns helpful lessons before taking off!

 

by Lauren Gooch - August 13, 2019

If you or someone you know is headed off to college soon, you’re probably wondering what to expect. Jill, Olivia, and Lauren are back with another college feature – this time to provide you (and Johanna!) with some advice to help with this new transition. While we’ve added some humor to our feature, we hope you’ll be able to see some truth in each of these lessons.

First, the food may be a little different than you’re used to, so you’ll want to bring snacks that fit your lifestyle and preferences. Oh, and now is the time to take advantage of any free food or college discounts!

Next, college is the time to try new things! Whether that be a new club or activity, trying a new food, or meeting a new friend, this is your chance to try new experiences. While it can be tempting to sign up for all the activities, remember to prioritize well, and only sign up for activities that you know you have the time to devote to it. As Jill says, in the video, “You can do anything, but not everything.” Take time for yourself, your family and friends, and of course, your studies.

That being said, taking good notes is an important way to learn both inside and outside the classroom. Try taking notes on your phone to help you remember the lessons that you’ve learned, or write down favorite memories or funny quotes. When you have a bad day, you can look back on the fun times you’ve had and focus on the good that came from it.

Since you’ll be experiencing things that may be different from what you’re used to, remember to give things a second chance. Maybe you’re in a class you aren’t sure about, or haven’t had time to get to know your roommate yet. It’s important to give them a second chance, because you may find out that your first impression wasn’t always correct.

Next, it’s important to recognize that sometimes you may work really hard, but may not always get the grade or the recognition you think you deserve. But, it’s important to be proud of yourself for your successes, and recognize that you’re doing really well.

You’ll be around students frequently in your residence hall, during your classes, and on campus, so it’s okay if you need to take time for yourself once in a while.

And always, always, always save your files!

Your college experience will be what you make of it, so make your experience unique to you! Congratulations on your new adventure, and we wish you a wonderful, fulfilling, and successful college experience!
