Smart Advice: From High School to College

Making the jump from high school to college is more than finding your way around an unfamiliar campus. In addition to having more independence, college freshmen often find that course material includes more assigned reading and writing, too.

The good news – and the bad news – is that Mom and Dad aren’t there to bug you about getting your work done on time. As a new college student, you would do well to get a calendar or download a scheduling app to note when assignments are due, when tests are scheduled, and other important times and dates to help keep you from pulling last minute “all nighters.”

When it comes to your health, be sure to get enough sleep, eat smart, and listen to what your body tells you. College is a time that requires lots of sustained energy – about four years worth, in fact. So pace yourself.
