Tips For College Freshman
Joining a new college and starting your education is not that easy in the beginning. No matter, how old you are or how much experience do you have, you will always have some fear and hesitation in your mind about joining a new college. And in the studies like Engineering and Management, students will also find themselves a lot busy soon after the session starts. Thus they have very small amount of time to get familiar to the environment of the college or university. You also have to fit in the schedules and time table of the classes in your specified course or degree.
Following, i am going to give you some tips specially for new students who have joined the college recently. These tips will surely help you to get yourself familiar with the college and your new environment,
Schedule a Visit: Most of the times, our mind is worried about the place that we are going to visit and live for some of our next years of the college. To minimize the hesitation and stress about the new place, we should schedule a visit to the college and accommodation before settling up there. When visiting the college, we get to learn about the college, students and atmosphere of the college. In the visit, you can also ask any queries to the staff and students there and make your doubts clear. Scheduling a visit can greatly impact your college life, it will make it easy for you to stay in the new home.
Make a Time Table:Making a time table will be much helpful to manage your time more effectively and efficiently in the college. Keep in mind to ask these questions to the faculty related to your classes time table. Know about the exact timings about the classes and labs prior to joining the college. Make your lists and mention all your required tasks. Making a time table will be much of help if you are going to complete some auxiliary tasks also such as Job  or Work.
Participate: Even though, new college or university may be a bit strange thing to you but you should get friendly with it. Participate in college groups, students conversations and in extracurricular activities. This will not only help you in braking your shyness but will also help you in establishing good relationships with other students as well as faculty. These relationships can be really useful for you in the college as you may need a lot help from your staff or students in your studies or in personal life. Participation is also a great way to lose the fear.
Improve Your Reading and Learning Skills: Reading and learning skills are very important for a new admitted student of the college. You are present in the college in order to learn something new and if you do not have good learning and reading skills then you are not going to learn much. In higher studies you have to read a lot of content such as books, research papers etc. So you should have good reading skills. You should know how you can find the important information in a paragraph and skip the rest. If you think that your reading skills are not that good then you should seek for some advice from your class fellow and professors.
Be Free and Happy: No doubt that college is the most important part of your lives and it has great impact on the future of a student. But alongside it is also the time to have some fun. Go play with your friends and enjoy your day. The time that you spend playing or enjoying yourselves won't harm you. In fact, you will feel much better and will come to study with a fresh mind. Don't take too much stress of college work. Just do what the best you can and everything will follow. Being active and taking part in extracurricular activities will also help you to stay healthy.
