We'll, at least for college students, at least in this video, is just for all the, um, freshman better about to start college and matter about to move in and literally, like, a few weeks. It's crazy that I know a sophomore in college like I'm an upper classman now, so I don't like it still blows my mind. Today's video I'm going to give you five helpful tips for you freshman out there that I feel like we'll be really hopeful in that will get you a successful first year in college. Okay, So tip number one is to first join your class, um, group chat or a facebook group or whatever You want to join it before orientation because it is just a really great way toe like, communicate with your class and, you know, other freshman better also gonna be moving in with you, and you're gonna be taking classes with the mainly, literally such a great way to just see, like, who your peers are gonna be and like, get to know them. It's easy way to make friends before you even get to school and move in and things like that and be interactive in that group, you know, talk to people message people like, Hey, are you interested in being like my roommate or Hey, I heard you like this, but I Do you, like, just make friends up there before you actually move in and start school? That number two is to Onley buy textbooks that you will need. I literally I've learned this past year that you do not need to get every textbook that is in your class or syllabus, literally like in the spring. I really financed my way because I was not gonna buy 10 books that I was gonna use once and then never use again my life and like the rest of my life. So just please save your coin by literally finessing your way and you know, barring a friend's book that did buy the textbook or if you just feel like, um, maybe throw out the first week of class to be kind of give you some time thio by your textbooks. If it seems like you don't really need your textbooks while doing the work in the course, then don't get it, please. I saved, like, hundreds of dollars already, and it was my first year because I didn't get, like, every single text book for my class. So just buy books that you know you would need for that class. Tip Number three is to join clubs and participate in school events literally. Your first saw your first year of college on your resume. For some reason, you might want a job during your freshman year. So for your resume, you are allowed tohave like your high school experience for just your freshman year while you're a freshman. After your freshman year, like people do not want to see your high school experience, they want to see what you've done your first year college and literally like that's it. Like I just updated my resume, and I had to delete all my high school experience because it's not really want it anymore. Are necessary because I already did my fresh air in college and so normally jobs, or especially on campus jobs or internships. They want to see what you have done in high school, and that's it. That's why I'm telling you right now is to try to join things volunteer for, like, local events help out around campus because that will go really nicely going resume. It was show that you've been such an active student around campus and in your school. Yeah, because you do not like one after your second year of college to have nothing on your resume, your resume going look like nothing's on. Tip Number four is to find a balance between school work and your social life. I know it's your freshman in college, you're away from your family and you're living on your own. The reason why you're there at school I know I feel like college is really fun. Like you have the freedom to do whatever, basically, whenever you want to do and like, go out party, whatever all that. You need to remember that you are mainly there to get your degree and we, like, just please find the balance between school work in your social life. Trust me, like I love going out been hanging out with my friends. If I got a 10 page paper due, um, on Monday and I want to go out Friday, then I like I can't like I can't do it because I know I got a paper to do. I know they're professors out there that will just work your nerves and that you just disagree with all the time. You almost fell into class, but you just need like that 10.5 points to you know, passed the class. So if you're nice to them, they will literally be nice to you. I am telling this right now it is not hard to pass a college class. It's just it's not hard at all, literally. If you do all the school work that you know, your professor until tells you to do and all of that, you will pass the class. Honestly, you wouldn't even get a of the class like it is not that hard. You just have to be dedicated to your school word and being a student and really being focused. You will passed the class and even getting a possibly be focused. Okay? You are there to get your college education and leave so you could have a better life for yourself. Those are my five tips for having a successful fresh year in college.
