A Guidebook to College

This blog post is a little different than my other ones, but its ok to switch it up at times, right?

I don’t know about you but when I started college for the very first time I did not have some sort of guidebook on where to start with. I had to pretty much ask people and find things on my own. therefor, for this week I thought it would be interesting in providing you with a guidebook to college of the things no one tells you before you start college.

Alright,lets start!

The 6 Things no one tell you before you start college that you have to figure out on your own!

Number one:

Take the time to find yourself that first year.

Personally,I wouldn’t recommend dating or getting married that first year of college,and I’m so glad I didn’t. Trust me,you need that time for yourself. You just came out of high school; take your time to get to know yourself before you commit to get to know someone new. Being in a relationship is a beautiful thing, but just like with everything else you have to put lots of effort to make it work. If you don’t take the time and effort to find what you need in yourself and make yourself happy, Then how would you expect  to make your partner happy?

My point is take your time. Whether it’s with school,relationship or yourself, don’t let society pressure you in doing the thing that YOU’RE not ready to do.

Number 2:

You will not find your husband or wife your freshman year of college.

Just relax and take the time to know yourself first. The right person will be there when YOU are ready. As long as you are being honest with yourself you should be fine.

Number 3:

95 percent of the time you will not sell your textbooks back at the end of the semester.

Don’t buy every textbook your professor assigns. Find pdf’s of your book online. Most of the time you can get the previous edition of the book to class, Of-course you should ask your professor in advance.

Number 4:

your syllabus is your best friend so don’t loose it. Don’t loose that thing. Most of the time its 95% accurate scheduling and its really useful  and easier to catch up when you miss notes or a class.

Number 5:

“what are you going for?” Be prepared to have a good satisfying answer to those people that wont stop asking, and trust me they will find any opportunity to ask you from day 1 of college. Actually there will even some that will ask you BEFORE you even start college so just be prepared and don’t be annoyed. You are doing everything right. Just keep working hard and follow your heart.

Number 6:

Go to advisement before every semester starts.

 Trust me on this one. Even if you think you know what classes you’re taking and 100% sure you’re all set for the next semester, still I advise you to see  your adviser at least to confirm your classes. These people are really helpful and can save you from a lot of trouble before you even think of one.

Thats all for this week. Hope these tips helped you and see you next time!

  1. Yes i agree with you, it’s always nice to try something different and it’s okay to try new things. It’s amazing of how you came up with this idea about the college guide. I have never thought about it. Yes in the freshmen year no one tells you anything. It’s all about going through the motion and figuring things of your own.
