Day in the Life of a College Student
Make it to all of your classes and participate! It's not cool to skip class anymore, plus it could be a giant waste of your money. The beauty (and fun) of college is the ability to set your own coursework and daily schedule. Consider that many degree programs are very structured and some classes are only offered during a certain time.
Getting to class can also be a hurdle to your success. You will have to plan in time to walk, bike, drive or bus to class. Some forms of transportation are more reliable but may take more time. Don't show up late, cringe!
