This tips are very helpful in making students remember a few important things about college and I believe that it will help to review all of the tips and follow them this term and see what the outcome will be.

The first tip that they provide is that we need to remember what we as students came to college for in the first place which is to learn. It states that although having fun is good, we need to always remember that school comes first.

The second tip is about setting realistic goals. It says that we need to begin the term or semester setting goals that we can achieve and it could be in anything such as working out more or better grades. It also adds in that when we achieve these goals we will feel better and we will do better overall.

The third tip is to stay positive, don't bring yourself down when things don't go your way, which is something that made me really interested in this article because that is something i do often when things do not go as i had planned or if i don't do well on a test or quiz. Staying positive is important because negativity can cause you to feel self doubt and may even cause you to give up, which is never a good thing to do.

The fourth tip is linked with time management. It states that the best thing for college students to do is to manage their time wisely and making sure that you make time for important things like projects and assignments is the best thing you can do to assure that it gets done on time. This will not only make it easier for you to get things in on a specific deadline, but it will also help reduce the stress of trying to finish projects at the very last minute. The final tip that this article has listed is believing in yourself and telling yourself that you can achieve anything that you put your mind to.

This is the best form of motivation, because if you can motivate yourself to have an amazing term and that you can do anything that you set your mind to then Ibelieve that it will come true.
