The truth is that the transition from high school to university is a tough one. So it’s good you state out your goals and plan on how to achieve them. Nonetheless, university is an amazing experience and it’s fun too. So here are a few tips one might need:

1. Budget – as a fresher, spending money on things you necessarily don’t need is common. However knowing your constraints with respect to your money is important. Don’t spend money on things you don’t need, get your essentials for school. Needing is different from wanting. And also practice the habit of saving. 2. People always talk. You have to learn to ignore them! – it’s important to have a social life and also relating with your roommate or colleagues at school as it would help you adjust and also meet new people. While doing this, you have to remember that people would talk or always have a negative comment about you or what you are about. It is your duty to ignore them and not get bothered by rumors. 3. Set goals – it is important to set your goals when heading to the university as it is where the most mind opening learning of your life will happen. Set clear goals for yourself and how you plan to achieve them. 4. Refine Your Study Habits – Maybe you haven’t had a difficult course before, or you’re a natural student who doesn’t often struggle with schoolwork. Now that you’re confronting a hard class, it’s time for you to whip your study strategies into shape. Set aside time for reading, writing and other coursework each day and give yourself rewards if possible. 5. Go to class – it is never a smart idea to miss classes. By not going to class you may miss out on notes and the lecture, both of which may include important information for exams. Attending each class is an important step for success in your most difficult courses. 6. Fight stress – Sometimes we make things harder on ourselves simply by worrying about them. It’s important to take some time for yourself to reduce your stress level and gain perspective on your workload. Make sure you’re getting enough rest, eating well and also attending social activities 7. Lighten your load – sometimes one might have taken on too much and it’s become a burden for you. You can drop classes, even though you can’t drop your most difficult course, you can drop a course that is not necessary for your graduation. 8. Seek Outside Help – when faced with a difficult course and you feel like you can’t handle it, it’s okay to seek for help outside. For some students, outside tutoring can be a lifesaver.
