Before the academic year gets too far along, this is a perfect time to make some “new year resolutions.” What adjustments can you make to make the year really count?
Here are some resolutions to help you Make College Count:
- I will go to all my classes, even the early ones.
- I will study between classes.
- I will learn what resources are in the library and how to find and use them.
- I will stay away from the television set.
- I will make a concerted effort to get involved in several extracurricular activities early in the year.
- I will make my study time count by studying in the quietest, least distracting setting I can find.
- I will learn as much about the internet as a business tool as I can.
- I will record all of my assignments and exams in my planner so I can foresee and survive the “crunch times.”
- I will get to know my professors.
- I will have a great time socially, but not so great that my college record suffers.
- I will avoid all-nighters because they create more problems than they solve.
- I will add at least one meaningful “success story” to my resume every semester.
- I will learn about the career placement center long before senior year.
- I will be the first person I know to look for a good summer job.
- I will read at least one major newspaper or new magazine on a regular basis.
- I will Make College Count.
