Products for them are usually in the refrigerator. The manual will help to find a simple and original recipe for sandwiches or scrambled eggs, as well as festive dishes and baked goods.

Active Communication

Create a group on Facebook and invite all classmates into it. You will get to know each other faster, you can lay out the schedule, scans of lectures, important announcements. You can also create a general chat room for posting urgent news in one of the social networks or in the messenger that most classmates prefer.

Get to Know the Teachers

Write down the names and phone numbers of all teachers. If they are late, you can always call and find out if the lesson will take place; this will save you from useless waiting.

Any additional information will also be helpful. Ask older students how specific teachers treat to the absence on lectures, how they behave during examinations, what questions they like to ask. This information will help to avoid problems with strict teachers.

Write Lectures by Hand

Some students use a dictaphone on lectures and simply sit, looking in emptiness. Do not do that! A passively sitting student annoys teachers, hears information less well, and when he wants to repeat the lecture, he must listen to it wholeheartedly.

It is best to write by hand. Many studies have already proved that students who take notes by hand perceive information more qualitatively than those who print on the computer. In the notebook you can draw diagrams and make notes, shorten sentences, add pictures. All this helps not to forget information and shortens the time for its repetition.

Cope with Your Academic Papers on Time

During the increased workload at the university, the neuro-emotional tension increases, and additional tasks are even more tiring. In such circumstances, you can easily bring yourself to depression and emotional burnout. In conformity with the research, about 40% of students suffer from this disorder; this burnout occurs against a background of high load. So make sure to finish your assignment on time.

In order not to increase stress, start preparing in advance and do everything in time. Then you do not have to write poor-quality work at night, and in the morning to hope for the teacher’s indulgence.

Buy a Printer

During the training, you will have to print a huge number of documents and some works will be printed more than once because no one is immune from mistakes. In such conditions, a compact inexpensive printer is not an excess. It is a good investment that saves time and nerves.

At the time of training, it is worth choosing something that is not very expensive to use, like inkjet printers with refillable ink tanks instead of cartridges. With these printers, there is no need to purchase expensive cartridges that end at the most crucial moment.

Use Interval Repeats

In order not to learn everything again before the exam, periodically review your lecture notes throughout the year. Use the technique of interval repetition. Repeat the information at increasing intervals, at the moment when it begins to be forgotten.

Repeat the topic one week after the lecture, then two weeks, a month, two months. Gradually, knowledge will move into a long-term memory. Before the exam, you will only have to refresh the material, and not study it again.

Communicate and Be Active

To expand the circle of communication, acquire connections that will be useful in the future, and show your talents, participate in student activities. If you love organizing work, become one of the activists. So you will be able to find out the news about contests, grants, and trips, and learn how to organize events.

If you are good at performing in public – participate in public concerts. Want to show knowledge and erudition – take part in quizzes and Olympiads, are good at some kind of sport – participate in competitions from the university. Any such activity will add acquaintances. It will open new opportunities and provide a good relationship with the teachers.

Think About the Future

Many perceive the university as an opportunity to extend their childhood, and after graduating, they have no idea what to do.

To avoid this, decide as soon as possible what you want to do next: continue training, engage in scientific work, work for a prestigious company or establish your own. Years of study in the university will fly very quickly.

Communicate as much as possible, go to seminars and master classes, earn experience in the field in which you are going to work, and never continue training, if you suddenly realized that you made a mistake with the choice. Appreciate your time, then from a successful student, you will become a valuable specialist.
