College is about the people you meet. Value them above all else.
Try to learn very different things. Some of the most confident and successful graduates are skilled in two seemingly polar subjects, like computer science and political science or finance and filmmaking. You’ll be surprised by how you can pair these together to create something unique.
Graduates often lament that they spent their entire college career trying to recover from the damage inflicted to their GPA in the first semester.
College classes cover material much faster than high school classes. When students slip behind in understanding, they get battered.
College is a chance to systematically confront your personal weaknesses in the safety of a four-year sandbox.
Take advantage of office hours. They are there for a reason. It's your chance to get one-on-one help from your professors. If you are struggling in class, there is no reason why you shouldn't be going to your professor's office hours.
Don't fall behind. Don't procrastinate. College is very fast-paced and it's very difficult to catch back up.
