The Secrets To College Life

By Renee Woodruff

College life can be difficult if you don’t know what you are doing, most of the time college students will have a survival guide to help them survive their time at college and maybe even enjoy the experience. Money is going to be the most obvious factor when it comes to surviving college, make sure you buy all of your essentials before splashing out on the fun things in college life.

Living in shared accommodation for at least part of your college education is one of the joys of college life. This may be the first time that you and many other students have had to share their living space with someone their not related to, learning to adapt to this situation is the difference between enjoying your time at college and college being a living hell. It is important for everyone’s comfort that you set boundaries for your roommates. Setting boundaries makes sure that everyone gets their own personal space and this will make life at lot more comfortable for both you and your roommates. To experience as much as you can at college it is important to make sure that you set aside time to study and time to have fun. Everyone has their own standards that they have to live up to, as long as you clean up after yourself everything at college should run a little easier, although there is not guaranteeing your roommates will be the same.

You should not let the new people you meet influence your relationship with friends and family back home. It is a good idea to remember that you had a life before college and you will have one after college as well. With that being said yo0u should keep in touch with people outside of college so that you will have a support network if life at college becomes too much for you at times.

There are no set ground rules for you to follow that will make settling into college easy, but you should give it time. Going to college with a negative attitude and rushing home every chance you get will make college harder for you. As a rule many of the best times at college happen during the weekends and you should try not to miss these opportunities when they arise.

Sleep is important at college, even when the times seems to be rushing past in an excited blur. It is important that you get some sleep so that you will be able to do some studying when the fun dies down for a while.
