Being Positive During Freshman College Year
How to remain Positive the During Initial Year Of College
During high school studies, students can afford to have a fun time and they can even get a bit laid back when it comes to working on their college essays, term papers, and other academic projects. Once they complete high school and get to the college they need to start taking things more seriously. In high school, a mistake here and there can save them from trouble but college is a serious business and they must mend their ways in order to get through college years. In college the rules and academic curriculum is different. The approach of teachers is entirely different. It is more based on self-learning rather than teachers spoon feeding their students. Students must learn to prepare their lessons in advance so that they can have a better grasp of different concepts being discussed in the class by the professor. Being prepared in advance can also get them in a better position to cross-question their teacher when they have any difficulty in grasping something difficult.
It is true that college years are tough especially for the freshman because they are suddenly in an entirely new territory which they are not prepared for. Freshman students must learn to be positive and go with the flow. They must do things as they happen in college. They cannot afford to become negative because it could de-motivate them and it can have a bad influence on their entire approach in college.
The first thing college freshman should do is to become open with their classmates and come out of their shells. They must not find a quite corner somewhere in college and avoid everyone as it could create a bad impression. If they need to ask about directions in the college they must seek help. They must remain positive and learn to go with the flow. They must prepare to work very hard because being in college is no joke and requires serious attitude in order to be successful.
Students should keep a separate notebook for each academic course they enroll in. When in class during the lecture they must jot down important notes so that they can be remembered and used when writing essays. If students have any questions or they fail to grasp a key concept being discussed in the class they must ask questions from the teacher and remove any confusion and misunderstanding.
