**Spoiler Alert** It’s not as exciting as it is in the movies!
10 Killer Ways to Survive College Like a Boss!
Unlike school, you will deal with all types of people in college. Types you never even knew existed. So, it will be hard to let that all sink in. You can’t do anything about the way people are! Take your sweet time finding the correct type of friends, and don’t jump into the wrong gang of people.
9. Shut your ears to them silly rumors
So, one thing you cannot prevent here is rumors. Rumors will be flying around. It will be a big mistake if you try to fix them. Shut your ears to their silly words, and just let them be.
8. Make use of the library
Yes! You heard me correct—the library. Books make the best companions. The solace and peace your library can offer you are beyond words. The smell of old crumpled pages is heavenly. Amidst your college’s rush and busy atmosphere, you need this library experience. Also, it can help you a lot when it comes to academics.
7. Participate in college fests
College fests are the best platforms to showcase your dormant talents. Don’t cuddle up in a corner. Participate in competitions and fests. Get involved and be active. These are all memories to take with you once you pass out.
6. Say NO to what you are not into!
You don’t need me to say this, but a college is where many forces are waiting to lure you into all sorts of things. Make it clear that you are not into it. Don’t be afraid to say no. It can take you a long way. Saying no can make sure trouble is just a spot in the distance.
5. Try not to skip classes!
While the prospect of not skipping classes and studying can seem daunting, it helps you take a load off your shoulders. Say no procrastination. It’s better not to delay your portions to the day before your exams.
Cramming won’t get you anywhere. So, get your work done, and then do your thing! As easy as that.
4. Think twice before getting into a relationship!
Relationships are fun.
But think twice or even thrice before getting in a relationship. While you can fantasize about having a college sweetheart, don’t get involved just for it. Get involved only if you want to because breakups are not fun and can affect you terribly.
Have you explored your college yet? It isn’t a rule per se. But it’s essential.
Most students pass out of their college without really embracing the college campus. Try taking a walk around the college campus during breaks, and why not mark your existence there?
2. Work Hard
All the fun times apart, you need to work hard too. It would help if you strived to get better grades.
Keep track of your course and syllabus and ask your professor in case of doubts. Let them know that you can have fun and get good grades too.
And finally, we arrive at the most crucial rule. That is to enjoy. May you be leaving with experiences, moments, and memories to cherish for a lifetime when you pass out?
I wish you all a happy college life! Make the most out of your life at college.
