General Study Habits

College is a time of many transitions, both social and intellectual. One of the keys to academic success in college is learning to balance these often conflicting pressures. Making new friends, joining social organizations, and generally involving yourself in campus life are all important elements of your personal development.

You should never forget, however,
that the primary reason you are in
college is to get an education!

Therefore, you should always make sure that the amount of time you spend in class and studying out of class exceeds the amount of time you spend socializing. In other words, take your studying seriously by devoting the necessary time to achieve academic success.
