Ten Tips You Need to Survive College

There are several steps how I can be successful as a student.

First of all, I need to schedule classes that I want to take earlier or on time. At first day of the school, I should be on time, take notes, save, and organized all papers that teachers give to me. Also, I am responsible to do my homework and studying for each subject should take minimum 2 hours of each class. The best time to do my homework is the daytime when my brain is fresh.Of course, it should be in a comfortable and guiet place. It should also be noted that I have to visit campus library, use the computer facilities, or get help in the Tutor Center if I need it. Finally, sleeping 8 hours at night and having at least one or two students to study with are really helpful to reach my goal, to be successful student.

First know what classes you want to take and make sure you have a notebook to take notes in your classes. You are going to need them later.

My favorite are: try not to schedule back to back classes, so you have time to study in between. Attend the first day of class, so you know what is expected and you wont be behind. Don't just study in class also study outside of class. Study in a place you are comfortable in. Do the work in your worst subject first, so you're not too tired after doing the easy subject.

To me surviving college is very important because surviving is what makes you successful. If you can't survive then pressure builds up and you'll get too stressed that you will want to quit. Setting your own tips on how to survive is helpful too,but actually going with it is what really helps. Sometimes all you have to do is just take a big deep breath and go along with the flow.
