Hey guys, how are you all doing?
I want to share with you a little bit on how to become successful student.
First you need to adapt with the situation. College is real and is not like in high school, where teacher remind everyone to do their homework. In college, you have to remind yourself. So my first tip for you is buy an agenda book, if you don’t have one.
On the agenda, you can write when your homework need to be completed. The key to do this agenda is to always keep your agenda updated and keep looking at them. Once you finish all of your classes for the day, take a break for one hour then check your agenda. This way you’ll not forget your assignment.
Hint Hint Hint: you can get them for free, usually at the first day of college they will be handing out student handbook and there is agenda in it. So there you have it! Saving some couple bucks for food! 🙂
After you have an agenda, you have to bring note book and pen to your classes. Your professor will say something important and you want to jot it down, so that when quiz and test come you can study from it and remember what your professor say that is not in the book. This notes that you take will come handy someday.
Last but not least, you need yourself to be in the class room and your brain ready to learn new knowledge.
I GET IT.
We all have that inner voice that say: “I’m tired, I want to go to sleep or I just want to watch movies all day long.” However, when you’re in class you need to put that aside. Going to school is like making a commitment to work. The effort that you put to obtain the knowledge is what you’re going to get out of it. If you just playing around at the class room, then you will not learn anything. If you pay attention, then you’ll gain new knowledge.
So come to class every day, and paying attention is important!
There are some more tips that I can offer, but I’ll stop here for this edition and feel free to listen to a podcast for one of my assignments for Writing for Broadcasting taught by Professor Paul Miller. In the podcast, “Can I be a College Student? Yes You Can” produced by my friends Sherri Long, Sy Pinthong, Carl Morrow, and I share a bit on our secret to be successful student.
