Its really just like highschool to be honest but your schedule is mais in your control.
I dunno about community college but try to work with your advisors and I would recommend putting your classes back to back rather than leaving hora gaps or what not since that SOUNDS nice but it gets old real fast
Also know what you want to get out of your degree there before going to college otherwise youll waste time and units
1) Learn how to research and reference properly - took me a solid two years 2) Extracurricular and volunteering opportunities are rampant. They're fun, and look pretty good on a resume. 3) In many cases you don't need to graduate before working in your area. A lot of companies/ firms/ institutions will let you do internships or even part-time work.... dependent, of course, on the work you want to do (they ain't just gonna hand you a scalpel and let you at it) 4) Explore the whole campus. Some people never venture outside of their faculty district and it shows. 5) Use a keep-cup. Don't steal someone else's keep-cup. Don't steal their replacement keep-cup for the one that was stolen. GIVE ME BACK MY KEEP-CUP! 6) If you're struggling with mental health, please see the councillors - usually a free service at uni's. Just use it - there's no shame in going, and many many people will need it sometimes in their uni life. 7) If you're doing a science degree, embrace the statistics. You cannot run from statistics. Statistics will find you. Statistics always find you. 8) If you go to the same coffee place every day, learn the names of the people working there, they're probably pretty cool. 9) Invest in friendships as much as academics - to finish your degree, you are going to need people just as much (or more) as you'll need study. Easier said than done, but just take a leap of faith and say hi to that person seguinte to you, or cadastrar-se a club and have people say hi to you instead. Having friends at uni makes the world of difference.
Just as others have said before me, it's a bit of a mais advanced High School. See it like that. Do what you were doing so far. You'll have mais freedom for sure but mainly stick to the schedule. Be consistent with your studying as well as attendance of classes. That being said, no need to stress that much over them. Simply do your best and everything else will play out on their own. It'd be good to make some connections regarding your Class as it'll both give you an easier time regarding communication and at least one mais shoulder to lean on in case you miss out anything. Do not hesitate to express yourself regarding any matter that you would like to talk about in there. They say that lasting relationships are being made during those years. Be open to opportunities and accepting to Life. Both Success and Failure are a never ending cycle. You might experience a bunch of the later but don't let them drag you down as there are always better days to come. Keep that in mind whenever you feel yourself being backed down in a corner. I wish you the best of luck !!!!
Congratulations for getting into college. I think others have already covered everything I wanted to say. College is like an investment in yourself so make sure you major in something you like or are passionate about.
