2. Make a plan and make sure to have consistency
College life isn’t like high school. There are no parents or teachers to remind you everything you need to do. You have to list it all by yourself. When you have a dream, you should know what to do every day to make sure you achieve your goals. Set your own time in balancing them with your studies, working out, enjoying some entertainment after a heavy period of lectures, taking notes or even going to meet your own lecturers to ask for some tips.
You need to know that studying is like working out where it is done best in shorter period regularly. It means you have to study consistently (it would be daily) so your brain could remember everything you read. Do not push yourself to study hard from day to night. Take breaks in between or set a few hours but do it consistently for example every night. Learn to study smart not study hard.
Make sure to always make yourself be more organized like remembering the dates of exams, what to study for the quiz and so on. What grades you will get depends on what the efforts you put in. And last but not least, please make sure to always show up in your class as attendance is part of the grade at the end of the semester.
3. Joining the community
Even though you have to give more commitment on studying, it doesn’t meant you have to avoid yourself from joining the community groups. Do not neglect the fact that you will become depressed and have no friends if all you ever do is studying all the time.
