If you’re heading to college this fall, you’re probably a little nervous. It’s OK. Everyone was a little apprehensive. You’re leaving the comfortable confines of high school and entering a whole new world.
Don’t fret. We have some suggestions to help you make that transition.
Lisa Ferguson and John Iadarola from TYT University offer these suggestions.
- Beware of people who think they’re smarter than everybody else.
- Strike a balance between talking too much in class and not talking at all. And don’t ask too many questions or give your opinion on every single thing.
- Hard work is more important than talent.
- Remember to make good choices so you can fit in both in class and in social settings.
Or, you can watch and learn even more.
Lisa and John also offer this advice on what bad habits you need to break before you get to college:
- Your life isn’t over if you walk into class late. Just go in and take your seat.
- Don’t act like you’re the coolest kid around ‘cause that’s just annoying.
- Don’t make excuses for late or missing work. Your professor has probably heard every possible fake excuse there is.
- Don’t shout out snide comments during class to try and get your classmates to laugh.
Watch and Lisa and John explain each of these.
Good luck. You’ll be great.
