  • Video of TU students sharing advice
  • Take the time to get to know your professors. Go introduce yourself after class, attend office hours, email questions. They have a lot of students, they won’t remember everyone, reintroduce yourself.
  • Depending on your class sometimes the homework isn’t mandatory or graded. But to truly grasp what your professor is teaching, you should probably take the time to do it!
  • HS - You will usually be told in class what you need to learn from assigned readings.College- It’s up to you to read and understand assigned material. Anything assigned is fair game even if it’s not discussed in class.There can be a lot of reading and not a lot of reminding.Be ready to read multiple chapters.
  • Your classes in high school were probably much more structured and regular. In college you will have times where everything is happening at once, and other times where you have nothing scheduled. This is why it’s important that you figure out where you are going to fit things in. Including study time.Also why it’s important to take notes during class, so you won’t forget what you learned in between.
  • HS - Teachers often take time to remind you of assignments and due dates.College - Professors expect you to consult the course syllabus to know what is expected of you and when assignments will be due.Remember the semester at a glance worksheet. Read the syllabus early, and be sure you notice when major tests and projects are occuring.
  • Those tests and projects are often a big portion of your grade, disregarding one could significantly impact your GPA.
  • Hold yourself to a higher standard. You are capable. Think of the people you admire, it’s usually be cause they are good at something, singing, being funny, great at trivia. To be truly good, those people often work very hard, they are passionate about it. Approach school in that same way. Work hard.
  • HS - Your time is structured by others.College - You manage your own time.Time management is something everyone always tells you to do. But finding a work/life balance now will help you through school and into your future careers. Make a schedule for yourself.
  • You don’t have to go to class…. But you probably should.All those books are going to cost a lot. Budget yourself.
  • Those large scale tests means there going to be a lot of content to remember, so don’t procrastinate and cram. Try to spread your studying out.
  • Since you’ll be manage your own time that means you will have to take responsibility for your choices. Making the right choice, whether it’s attending class, going to a party before and exam, or dressing appropriately for an interview, it’s up to you. We can only advise you.
