21 Golden Tips on how student can survive in college- Edu Upate


 Things to do as an undergraduate 



It a good thing to be into advance learning at the primary aim of getting a degree and leave the school, and that is the reason for the tertiary level, but knowing the proper things to do as an undergraduate is much better than any other thing, take notice of things undergraduates should do, if you have not been taking notice of that.





 Some people get frustrated as school registration goes though and the likes, generally, most of the new undergraduate (fresher) get carried away by the social life in the campus. More negative things students do in school but I think they does because they were not organized, they don’t have the knowledge (mostly the fresh guys and ladies).




But good news! You don’t have to obey to those social life and allow them overwhelm your goals in school, here are 21 good steps to take if you are an undergraduate



As an undergraduate of your various institution,you really need to get things done in the right way, so this is the best opportunity you might have ever accomplish. As always said, get yourself a conducive place and let learn something new, but might not be a conducive place this time.   



1. ATTEND ORIENTATIONS.


Attending orientation will do a long mile work, yes!! The earlier you engage yourselves with the college seminars and your way around campus the more and easier you will feel and the enhanced organized you will be when issues arise. people think, no!! i get myself orientation already before coming to university, but i bet you! going for school orientation is a 1000% useful tip to take first, you get the does and don't of the college. 



 2. GET TO KNOW YOUR ROOMMATE & OTHERS IN YOUR HALL OF RESIDENCE.


The persons you stay with, a significant amount of them are going through related experiences and feelings, but nevertheless, they are your main safety net — not only this year, but for all your years. You may change roommates after the first session or you may stay roommates for all 4,5,6 or 7 years — just take the time to get to know your fellow first-year students and make relationship with them.


 


3. BE ORGANIZED.


In secondary school, the teachers tended to lead you through all of your homework and due dates. In university, the lecturers would post the assignments — often for the entire semester and expect you to be prepared.

 Be an organizer, use an app, or get up with a way that will work for you best in organizing yourself, whatever it takes for you to know when assignments are due.



 4. LOOK FOR An IDEAL PLACE FOR YOU TO STUDY.


It may be your dorm room or a cozy corner of the library, just find a place that works best for you and get your studies  done — while avoiding as many distractions as possible. some read in the silence, some in a lousy environment, but the main point here is to check what works best for you get yourself the best decision.





5. ATTEND CLASSES.


Obvious, right? Possibly, but snoozing in and avoiding that 8 am class will be enticing most times, smiles. Avoid the temptation. Also learning the material by appearing in classes, you’ll also get vital information from your lecturers on what to expect on tests, changes in due dates and so on. you are not the listening or writing type right? but attending class is never a waste.







6. MEET YOUR LECTURERS.


Communicating as student to students, I can assure you there are only upsides to getting to know your lecturers, specifically if far ahead in the semester you run into some difficulties. Lecturers do plan office periods  the purpose only for consultation with students, so you don’t have to be worried if you will be sent out or not, just note the time he or she is less busy and go by then — take advantage of that time.





7. GET TO KNOW YOUR COURSE ADVISER.


Your course adviser is the only person who is ready to help you in your course encounters addition or subtracting of courses, planning of classes for upcoming semesters and taking meaningful decision on your majors and minutes aspect as your career is concern. This person should be the key source for you and you have to utilize it if you want to smile at the end of the semester — Your course adviser should be the person you turn to with any academic issues or conflicts.



Don’t be afraid of requesting another adviser if you don’t click with the one first assigned to you.


8. GET INVOLVED IN CAMPUS.


It is a dilemma for large number of new undergraduates is a combination of homesickness and a emotion of not somewhat belonging to the school.

 One solution for you, Consider fitting together with some selected and also vital group (and be cautious not to get over loaded with task) — undergraduate sororities, organizations, , clubs, or sports teams.



 You will make different families, acquire new talents, and feel more associated to education and your school.




9. STRIVE FOR GOOD GRADES.


Another obvious one here, right? Remember the words of the opening paragraph; while good grades could have come naturally to you in secondary school, you will have to earn them in Universities — and that means setting some goals for yourself and then making sure you work as hard as you can to achieve them by all means.




University of Ibadan vice chancellor said during freshers orientation while informing the student of their main priority in the school, he said "come here, get your degree and get out" ......smiles, that is true as most student forget their plan before arrival in their college, making their thirst for studying getting fade off. 





10. TAKE ADVANTAGE OF STUDY RESOURCES ON CAMPUS.


Just as all university have learning labs and tutors available. If you’re having some troubles, these resources were another tool avail for you such as the general library and the rest.

 Another idea: form study Group! It will really help a lot, and make sure you form the reading group with responsible once





11. MAKE TIME FOR YOURSELF.


Ensure you set aside some time for activities that could help you relax and take the stress out of your day or week. Whether it’s sport, watching your favorite movie, jogging, or writing in a journal, be good to yourself and give your brain a break.

 



 12. TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOURSELF AND YOUR ACTIONS.


Don’t look to pointing guilts on others for your errors you have made;  that is racism!! own up to them and move on.






13. HAVE A CONNECTION WITH YOUR COURSE MATES.


A University  student once said his technique in the first week of classes was to meet at least one new person in each of his classes, i hope that seems good to take into consideration, you don't have to have a programmed mentality of staying alone, that is too poor if you dwell with that thinking. But we are not telling you to make irrelevant friends 




14. DON'T PROCRASTINATE; PRIORITIZE YOUR LIFE.


It might be easy in high school to wait until the last minute to complete an assignment and still get a good grade, but that kind of stuff will not work for you in University. Give yourself deadlines — and stick to them.

Never hesitate to do the needful things you need to.




15. STAY HEALTHY & EAT ARIGHT.


A lot of problems students especially Fresher face can be traced back to an illness that kept them away from classes for an extended period of time that led to a downward spiraling effect.

 Get adequate time to sleep, consume more vitamins, and eat right.

If you are not familiar about college food, you will soon.

Without mom or dad there to serve you a composed meal, you may be tempted to go for those further fries, cookies or cafeterias.

 Stay healthy and avoid the dreaded junk food.




 16. LEARN TO COPE WITH HOMESICKNESS.


It’s only natural that there will be times when you miss your family, even if you were one of those ones who couldn't wait to get away. Find a way to deal with those feelings, such as making a phone call or sending some whatsApp message home.





 17.  SEEK PROFESSIONAL HELP WHENEVER THE NEED ARISE.


 Most University surely has health and counseling centers. If you are sick, feeling isolated or depressed, please take advantage of the many services these offices provides for students.

You don’t have to face these issues by yourself.

 




 18. KEEP TRACK OF YOUR MONEY (ECONOMIZE).


If you have never had time to create a budget, now is the time to do so.

 Find ways to save and stretch your money judiciously.








19. BE PREPARED TO FEEL OVERWHELMED.


Anticipate having minutes where it seems stress are getting too much. Remember a  quote that says , be prepared to feel absolutely unprepared. The trick there is to identify that you are not the single one feeling that way.





20. DON NOT CUT CORNERS.

This is a serious case mostly in some universities that have issues with security, but applicable to make use of this advice in any school you find yourself in. Go through the main road of universities to prevent stories that touch 




21. STAY OFF ROMANTIC RELATION WITH OPPOSITE SEX IN YOUR FIRST YEAR  

Very difficult right? i don't know what the hell is difficult in giving yourself time before going into any sort of relationship with an opposite sex, i think this is the major problem that is somewhat inevitable within student. I must confess, if you love yourself, stay away from relation in the university even for two year of your academic life in campus 




University is all about learning. If you cram and procrastinate, you may still do well during tests, but you will learn and understand very little, thereby not assimilating anything. Even worse, don not cheat during test or examination period! it will terminate you and your image.

I prayed you will not be rusticated in your various colleges



Wish you all success and hitch-free semester as new academic session resumption nears.
