10 Ways you can Succeed in College

Focus College wants all students to be successful. Here are 10 ways you can succeed in College and get the most out of your post-secondary experience:

1. Go to Class

You can not succeed if you do not go to class! Be present.

2. Take Notes

Always listen to your professors. Have a notebook open. Your teachers want you to succeed. They are not against you and will ensure you succeed.

3. Eat Healthy

Staying healthy, means you will be fresh to absorb your studies. Drink lots of water. Eat lot of fresh fruits and vegetables.

4. Pursue your Interests

Don’t be shy.  Branch out and expand and explore your interests.

5. Make a budget and stick to it

If you have never lived on your own before, it can be easy to spend money you don’t have on things that you don’t need. By making a budget and sticking to it will help you save hundreds of dollars over the course of a school year.

6. Learn as much as possible.

Absorb all knowledge you can. If English is not your first language,  try to learn a new English word each day!

7. Use an Agenda

Stay organized and keep track of all your assignments. You don’t want to miss anything important!

8. Sleep

How much sleep do you think you need? 8 Hours? More? Less? You should try to get as much sleep as possible to be fresh each day.

9. Make time for yourself

Remember balance is the key. There is going to be a lot happening between class, schoolwork, friends, your job, etc. But it is important you make time for yourself whether through exercise, sleep, or other hobbies.

10. Set Goals

Learn to set goals. What do you really want to achieve in your College experience? How are you going to achieve these? If you strive to improve yourself, you will.
