4. differences between the higher school and the college/university

Are you sure you want to go to college or university? You're not alone. I found a transition from high school to post-secondary school. You will quickly learn that the newfound independence will cost: be organized, disciplined and self-motivated

To take him from a pleasant student who has recently walked along the path you are about to start, there are significant differences between the senior and the high school. This is what you need to know before the start of the school year:

General Lunchtime? No longer exists. In the college/university, even if you are in the same program as your classmates, you may have different graphics. Get your schedules with your friends. This is especially easy if you use Google Calendar. And make an effort to see your friends. They'll appreciate it, even if they just get them out of their classes. Trust me-some of these friends have serious potential for the last time. As a first-year student, the playing field is relatively aligned. And everyone else feels less worrying-just turn to someone sitting next to you and talking. Chances, they're thinking about doing the same thing. And if you die a super-wise friend, it's even better! They can give you a view "there, made that" recommendation I'm trying to give you today

It means making a choice between attending a party on Friday night, when you have an interim Saturday morning. Is it worth it? You have to make a decision. You will be engaged in some serious mental gymnastics when it comes to balancing personal, professional and academic priorities. Just know that if you miss the class, your GPA will probably suffer. When this happens, you can't blame the professor or the evaluation system. It's all on you. However, if you decide to grow and learn your Ls before, you will restore time to save the CGPA. Remember: College/University is a marathon, not a sprint. But if you have that look at growth, it will help you to take the fall

By the way, TEDx will destroy the further thought of growth:

And no, it's not as easy as "Buzzfeed". The dilemma facing you will be very early

  • You can eat well and quickly, but it won't be cheap (i.e. food in good restaurants)
  • You can eat well and cheaply, but it won't be fast (i.e. making your own dishes)
  • You can eat cheap and fast, but it won't be good
  • As a student, you should try to eat well all the time. It's good for your health, which will have a positive impact on your scientists. But good food in your time and/or purse is a little tense. Fortunately, there are many quick, simple and healthy recipients-friend recipes. It may seem that at first they seem unconvincing, but after you are hanged, you will be tasteful and smooth. Try different combinations, do not hesitate to follow the prescriptions from the book-get creative!

    In high school, it was all perfectly well distributed. College/University? Let this be a distant memory. You may never have to take the morning class! Shorter interruptions are often better for short cuts or chats, while longer breaks can be used for deep learning or for serious workouts. In most cases, you can customize your work schedule outside of your classes. But remember that the delays can and will undoubtedly be your academic non-performing. I don't see any time breaks. My advice will be to create daily recurring events such as breakfast, lunch, work, etc

    So you have it. To a large extent, the differences between colleges and colleges and colleges are important for your new independence and what you have chosen for it. Visit your campus several times before the start of the semester. Take a look at the surrounding areas: restaurants, grocery store, pharmacy, parks and all this jazz. Look at the campuses and campus associations, as well as to the plan in which you want to commit your time

    Fortunately for all incoming freshiies and (obviously bored) current students in this upcoming semester, you will be great
