A Few Tips for College (that are opposite from what everyone tells you)

The wisdom for graduating college students is pretty predictable: Try new things! Balance your work and life! These are the best years of your life!

But practically, some practices are vital to your well-being in college, and vital to becoming an adult who is developing good habits.

Here are a few lessons I learned from doing things well, and doing things poorly, in college.

  • Don’t get too involved. Only do the things that make you feel alive.
  • Wake up early (even if it means going to bed early).
  • Take a Sabbath day once a week.
  • There’s more to your surroundings than your campus. Know your town.
  • Tutors are for smart kids, not dumb kids.
  • Let your mom help you.
  • Stop looking for your ring by spring.
  • Don’t believe everything that you read on RateMyProfessor.com.
  • Try not to eat Ramen that often, but when you do, add a bag of frozen veggies.
  • Stop wearing headphones in public.

And most importantly: make a lot of mistakes, but learn from every single one of them.

You can do this.
