As a freshman, making mistakes is a part of the growth process and it’s likely that you’ll make plenty of mistakes throughout your first year. You’re inevitably going to make mistakes, but hopefully with these follow 7 tips you’ll minimize the amount of damage you do, and enjoy your first year faster.

1. Take responsibility for your own learning. 

You’re not in high school anymore. Everyone in college is there to learn because they want to, not just to pass because they have to. There are a lot of opportunities for learning in college, often times outside the classroom. Take advantage of every opportunity you can.

2. Stay organized. 

Entering college means you must have the ability to doing things independently, not only personal life, but also learning and entertainment, etc. So you must learn to arrange everything properly.

For personal life, preparing storage boxes in your dorm is useful for organizing and storing small items in the limited space.

Learning and entertainment, keep a detailed calendar with all your events, including classwork, social events and extracurricular activities.

3. Eat healthy.
Your mom’s home cooked meals are no longer a frequently available option. Try to eat at your dining hall as often as you can and be sure to eat your fruits and vegetables. A diet of greasy pizza and beers every night isn’t exactly first-rate eating. If possible, making some healthy food or juice yourself in your free time, we offer you some choice of kitchen supplies.
