    10 Tips: 1.Don't procrastinate. This is probably something you've heard over and over again. In high school, I'd hear that all the time and think "oh, I'll be fine." Let me tell you this now: you won't be. Sure, you might be able to swing by in high school, but college is a totally different story. You have less classes to take, but they're more work. If you wait till the night before to get things done, it will not end well. Especially if there's a lot of assignments due the next day. 2.Learn to study--and Study more than just the night before. This is a big one. You WILL fail in some classes if you only study for an exam the night before. And if you fail one, you'll be playing catch up the rest of the semester. I've learned this the hard way. Some professors don't have a lot of exams for their classes--sometimes you only have three. 3.Time management. This is huge. This is the biggest problem many college students face. You absolutely have more free time, but lots of students don't know how to use and take advantage of it. I suggest having a planner or using an app on your phone to remind you of when you can do things. 4.Make time for fun. Nothing's more boring than sitting in your room all day and just doing work. Take part in some events your campus offers and make friends! 5.Know that, for some, the transition will be hard at first. Going from your home to a new place that you share with a complete stranger might be kind of daunting, but everyone else is going through the same thing. You'll eventually adjust-know there's no time limit on that. 6.Be friends with your roomate(s). You are living together after all. 7.Don't just eat junk food at the dining hall. Sure, pizza and fried chicken might look appetizing, but it's not healthy to eat it every single day. While they might be limited, try some healthy options. 8.Sometimes it's better to study than go out with friends. I don't mean to be a buzzkill, but you are in college to learn--and you're spending a lot of money to do it. Being better prepared for an exam is better than making a lower grade because you wanted to hang out with your friends. 9.Do the homework. I can't stress this enough. It'll help your grade as well as help you figure out what the professor is going to be testing you on. 10.Take advantage of tutoring. You don't want to have to drop out or fail a class.

    Georgia Southern University has plenty of resources for students. Career Services, an excellent Financial Aid department, FYE center for first-year students, Scholarship and Job Portals online, etc... My advise is to research them all and use them wisely. Remember, as a college student, your education is your #1 priority. Don't waste it partying and being distracted.

    Keep in mind the importance of the first semester. Don't take too many hard classes and kill your GPA, but also don't take too many easy classes and be forced to take only hard classes down the road. College life is about balance and this is a great opportunity to be able to learn that. Mistakes are ok, just make sure that you're learning from them. Remember that college isn't a lifestyle, it is a means to an end. Do what you love to do, have fun, learn some things, and good luck.
