10 Stepsto CollegeSuccessStep 1 – Attend Every Class🕽Though cutting class is sometimes tempting, don’t do it if you can help it. Save absences for whenyou’resick or have a real emergency that you cannot avoid. When you miss class, you miss lectures,notes,explanations of assignments, class discussions, and sometimes quizzes and in-class assignments.Gettingcopies of a classmate’s notes won’t always help.Step 2 – Get Organized🕽Get a weekly planner and use it religiously.🕽Create and maintain a tidy and organized study space, complete with everything that you need whenyou’re working: paper, pens, pencils, stapler, etc.🕽Use a separate 3-ring binder for each class you’re taking.🕽Back up all of your computer files on drives, disks, flash drives, or by emailing them to yourself.🕽Keepall papers, quizzes and tests that you get back from your teachers at least until the final gradesaresubmitted. If it’s a course related to your major, you may want to keep them until you graduate.🕽Get phonenumbers for your classmates so you can call them for study help, or to ask a question.Step 3 – Manage Your Time🕽Plan ahead. Know when your assignments are due. Break large tasks down into smaller pieces.🕽Don’tpromise more than you can accomplish. Spreading yourself too thin will only make you moretired and lessable to function at your highest level.
