Title: Tips for Success in College

Tips for Success in College
  • Almost everyone finds a certain aspect of
    college tough. For some people, its the
    academics for others, the social side. Whatever
    challenges you face, there are ways you can
    ensure your success.

Attend All Your Classes
  • Poor attendance makes it difficult to pass
    classes. Not only will you have missed out on
    lessons but teachers often grade according to
    commitment. On the flip side, if you always
    attend and are active in class, youll build a
    rapport with your teachers, which will help you
    build contacts that could be critical after

Take Advantage of Everything
  • Classes are just the start of what college has
    to offer. You also have a library for study
    material, academic advisors, tutoring services,
    and other support and this is just the academic
    side. If youre finding it difficult to meet
    people and make friends, check out the
    activities, clubs, and sports teams on offer.

Set a Study Schedule
  • Youre expected to be independent at college.
    Schedule some of your free time to study what you
    covered in classes and to review your notes.
    Experiment with different study techniques to
    discover the best methods for you.

Find a Comfortable Place to Live
  • Being happy where you live will impact all
    facets of your life. Remember, living on campus
    is only one option many students prefer to
    search for rooms to rent in Peterborough. Those
    students who do choose to live off campus need to
    make sure that they live close enough to Fleming
    College to make it to class on time.

Create Goals and Rewards
  • Set realistic, measurable goals. Keep pushing
    yourself to work a little harder and to achieve a
    little more every semester. When you do meet your
    goal, reward yourself to maintain your motivation.

Manage Your Finances
  • Youre on a tight budget that needs to cover
    your living expenses, food, books, and
    entertainment. Keep a close eye on your
    expenditures to ensure that you always have
    enough money for emergencies as well as for
    opportunities that arise to have fun with friends.

  • For most people, this means finding off-campus
    student housing in Peterborough. Students have
    the option of Severn Court, where they can live
    in an affordable suite, surrounded by other
    people with similar interests. Best of all, the
    housing is walking distance from Fleming College.
