Any advice for incoming college freshmen? :)

oh man you knOW IT

probs my most major advice right now is avoid 8 am classes whenever you can. They’re much easier to deal with in theory than they are in practice. there’s nothing like a dark, cold morning and a looming 8 am class to make you want to just roll over and unplug your alarm.

after that: REGISTER AS EARLY AS YOU CAN FOR CLASSES! this gives you a lot of time later on: if you fail a class, or want to take one again, you can restructure your schedule fairly easily and not have to make difficult compromises. In addition, you’re not stressed out after a nice relaxing summer trying to get into required classes that fill up like whoa.

In the same vein: try and aim for fifteen hours a semester. This is mostly up to you, of course, but taking about 15 hours means that you’ll get your 120 in four years without summer classes, and it doesn’t carry the same workload as 17 or 18 hours.

For the science majors: take no more than two labs a semester. Please don’t do this to yourself. I did. It was miserable. Give yourself time to rest during the week, instead of stressing over lab reports. Also: Monday labs suck, you have to do the lab reports over the weekend, but you get fresh specimens and equipment. Friday labs are relaxed, and you have the whole week to do your report, but everyone’s chewed up your specimens and the equipment is all dirty, and you’ll probably be expected to clean. Wednesday labs are nice because you can take your weekend ‘off’, the equipment and specimens you use are still mostly intact, and its in the middle of the week so you’re already awake.

Write down all your major tests, ESPECIALLY online ones. I cannot tell you how awful it is to have to scramble to study—or worse yet, scramble to take an online test as fast as you can because you forgot about it completely.

Hunt around for deals on textbooks, and sell them back as soon as you can: that doesn’t mean sell them back right before finals, especially if you’re in a chemistry course or something, but the earlier you sell back the more likely that the bookstore needs to buy back core books. In addition, wait for a little bit to buy your textbook. it’ll give you an idea how ‘required’ it really is. Never buy new unless you have to: buy used, because there are many people (like me) who hate marking in any book and will sell back their pristine textbooks.

If you’re not set on a major yet, take classes you’d want to take! figure out what your interests are, and what you’re good at! My brother went to college not really knowing what he wanted to do: however, he took a robotics class and absolutely fell in love. Now he’s pursuing engineering, which he probably wouldn’t have earlier because he was worried about the math requirements. And don’t worry if you want to change your major: college is the time that you kinda figure out what you really want to do for the rest of your life. I started off college going for a medical route, but then in my biology classes I was reminded about my longstanding love for marine biology.

Attempt to go to bed at a reasonable time: give yourself at /least/ six hours of sleep before classes. I cannot stress this enough.

If you’re still dozing off during boring lectures, though, I’d recommend bringing a small snack: the act of chewing helps keep you awake! I favor Reeses Pieces (the peanut butter works for me, idk), nuts like cashews and almonds, and oreos. For the more health minded, small ziploc bags of veggies would work well. Drinks work too: take a drink every time you start to feel yourself dozing off, and you’ll perk back up.

DON’T GET DISCOURAGED DURING YOUR FIRST TESTS PLEASE DON’T GET DISCOURAGED DURING YOUR FIRST TESTS. The first tests you take in college are always a slap to the face. I got a 65 on my first chemistry exam, and I thought it was easy! However, especially as a college freshman, you’re still trying to figure out how to study, and what’s more: you’re learning how your teacher tests. If you keep your chin up and keep studying in a way that helps you retain the information, your grades will go up by a lot! The first test is always the hardest: every one after that will climb, I promise.

Don’t be afraid to ask for help. I have an anxiety disorder, and it sucks: part of my anxiety revolves around fears that if I asked for help, I’d be “wasting my professor’s time”. However, when you actually go and ask them, they’re often very nice and willing to help you out! Professors understand, especially for first year students, that college can be rough. But if you take your failing grade to them, they are often more than happy to help you figure out what aspects you’re having trouble on, and help make sure that you learn it. A lot of schools also have tutoring sections, led by students, for students. And if you’re really struggling: ask about extra credit! A lot more professors provide that than you think.

Take fun electives. No, really: it’s often really tempting to focus wholly on your degree plan, but trust me, that doesn’t do wonders for your mental state. Take electives that are interesting, that are fun, that will help you destress some. For me, it was intro to scuba diving. For you, it might be a beginner’s pottery course, or yoga. Not only will these help you get some stress out, but they’ll be (hopefully) an easy A. Try and make room for a fun elective at least once a school year, or if you can’t fit it into your school schedule, see about joining a fun club that is active.

Vending machines are more expensive for food, and less expensive for drinks. You’ll pay a buck fifty for a $1 candy bar in a vending machine, but only $1.50 for a drink that usually goes for $2. Be picky. That extra fifty cents adds up.

Utilize the library. For me, the main draw of the library was a designated quiet floor: I could go there with my laptop, turn it on mute, and scroll tumblr for an hour over my lunch to help destress myself during a busy school day. The online site brought me straight to the database I used constantly: JSTOR. The libraries often also have designated study rooms, for you and a group of classmates to study together for an hour or two, or work on a project. It’s surprisingly versatile.

Try and make contacts in your class: swap numbers with the person that sits beside you. It’s really valuable if you’re sick and miss class and you need those notes, and you can pay them back later if they need to skip. On the topic of skipping:

Allow yourself one or two skip days a semester. You’re in college, man: you’ve got the ability to skip class whenever you want. However, skipping class also has the problem of meaning you miss the lectures and information present in them. Give yourself a day or two that you won’t feel bad about skipping, and allow yourself to sleep in and play videogames or read a book instead of go to class. It’s fun, it’s destressing, and you’ll be able to go to the next class period bright-eyed and ready to keep learning.

The obligatory “Have Fun”. I am not someone who believes that you should go to college with the sole focus on your education: you’re here, in a learning institution, taking a course that caters to you and you alone. Enjoy it: if you find yourself not having fun, try and evaluate why. Do you need a new major? Is your class workload too challenging? Adjust your schedule to fit you.

Feel free to message me if you need any advice at all, nonnie! I survived, and you can too: I know it.

This skull is from a Chinese water deer. These herbivores are found in east-central China, and in Korea. They weigh between 20-31 pounds, and feed on reeds, grasses, and vegetables. The large canine teeth are used are used by males during the rut, and for defense against predators. The canine teeth on females are much smaller.
