Good evening to my lovely readers! As promised, here is the first post on my school survival series. Today, I am sharing my tips on surviving your first week of college.
Make a list of things you need to do before you leave and make a list of things to bring. Having a plan for move-in day will make things go so much smoother.
Don’t pack your entire bedroom
Trust me when I say this. I packed way too much my freshman year. Unless you live in another country, you can leave your off season stuff at home and just switch it out when you go home for fall break. You will thank yourself and your roommates will thank you for not taking up all the storage space.
Participate in Dorm Activities
The get the know you games and first week cookouts may seem cheesy but it’s a great way to make new friends and feel more comfortable in your new school.
Print our your syllabus and start reading
Most of my professors have expected the first chapter of the textbook the be read before the first class. Plus it’s good to know what topics you are going to study and when things are do. You don’t want to be cramming last minute when you want to hang out with your new friends!
Get enough sleep
Please get enough rest each night, especially the first week. You’ll be doing a lot of things during the day and you’ll be exhausted. Don’t stay up all night just to stay up all night!
