5 Tips to a Successful College Year

Read syllabus

Reading your syllabus is very important. This contains the due dates for all assignments in each class. The syllabus will help you stay on track.

Take notes

Notes are very important because they will help you study for your exams. You will also need them for your final.

Ask questions

If you don’t understand your assignment contact your professor. This will help you achieve an A.

Show up to class

Not showing up to class will make you behind. It will also lower your grade. Most class attendance is at least 10% of your grade.


Prioritize your academics. Schedule a time for your homework. If you have assignments to do, complete them before hanging out with friends.
